    he was expecting- countries would support

    Hi,

    I think, he was expecting that once he showed the proof, countries would support him by one by. But it turned out otherwise.

    Is the above sentence grammatical?

    See above. I don't know what the underlined part means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Maybe you meant, one by one.
