Jerusalem recognition 'high point' of first year in office

Jerusalem recognition 'high point' of first year in office”

"This basically says that the United States acknowledges that the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, and saying also that the embassy is going to be moved to the capital, just like it is in nearly every other country".

Morales recently showed his support for Trump when he announced that Guatemala would move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, following the same announcement by Trump last December.

"I think Jerusalem was a very big point".

"Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a risky development that places the United States at a position of bias in favor of the occupation and the violation of worldwide law and resolutions", read the statement.

"It was very important that I recognized Jerusalem as your attractive capital city". To be completely honest, there were others who did not thank me. The move sparked outrage among the Palestinians and across the Muslim world, and Palestinian leaders said Washington could no longer serve as a Mideast peace broker.

Trump later said that he had recognized Jerusalem in order to take the issue off the table, adding that he had planned for Israel "to pay" in future negotiations for his declaration. "The capital, having Jerusalem be your great capital, was a very important thing to a lot of people". Since taking office, Trump has distanced himself somewhat from the two-state solution to the conflict that envisions a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

And asked if Israel will have to give something in return for the decision on Jerusalem, Trump said that "I think both sides will have to make hard compromises to reach a peace agreement". "All the other presidents failed to keep their promise, despite the fact that they promised it during the course of their election campaigns".

Speaking to the Israeli media, the United States president confirmed his commitment to support Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to facilitate a peace process with the Palestinians.
