US president Donald Trump Wednesday announced his decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Here are the latest updates on the controversial move:
US to immediately start process of moving embassy: Tillerson
There’s no other country that has an embassy in Occupied Jerusalem.
All foreign embassies in the state of Israel are in Tel Aviv. But a few hours from now, President Donald Trump is about to change that.
“Trump’s decision means Washington’s withdrawal from the Palestinian-Israeli peace process, and we will call for an emergency meeting for the Central Palestinian Council,” the Palestinian President said.
The sharply divergent reactions highlight the fact that there is almost no other issue in the Middle East as contentious as the future of Jerusalem.
