Indonesian parliament condemns plan to relocate US Embassy to Jerusalem”

Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Thursday strongly condemned the decision of the USA government to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel which may disturb the world's stability.

Indonesia asked the United States to reconsider the decision as it is against the United Nations' resolution and could disturb the world's security stability said Widodo.

Marsudi earlier remarked that Indonesia had condemned the USA announcement.

The president revealed that he has urged Foreign Minister, Retno Marsudi, to call the United States ambassador to Indonesia, Joseph Donovan, to convey Indonesia's stance. "We condemn this recognition".

Trump said the USA will move its embassy in Israel from its current capital Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as soon as possible.

Jokowi reaffirmed that he and the Indonesian people would remain consistent with regard to the support for the Palestinians in the struggle for independence and fulfillment of their rights, which are in line with the Preamble of Indonesia's 1945 Constitution.

Separately, the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) on Thursday also strongly rejected the move to acknowledge Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and the US government's plans to relocate the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Indonesia will consider further steps to respond to the issue after the OIC meeting, he said.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump announced his decision despite widespread global opposition to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

During his election campaign past year, Trump repeatedly promised to relocate the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
