Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli capital
Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli capital

US President Donald Trump has said he has determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Trump made the announcement in a speech at the White House on Wednesday.

He also disclosed he had ordered the State Department to begin preparations for relocating the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israel has long claimed Jerusalem as its capital, but no country has recognized the claim.

Palestinians under Israeli rule also claim East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Trump's decision is in line with his key campaign promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

But Trump in June signed a six-month waiver maintaining the embassy's current location, taking into consideration the impact the change in policy will have on the Middle East peace process. (...)
