  • Presidential Delegation to Embassy Opening Doesn't Include Trump

"I thank President Trump for making this historic moment come to fruition".

Breaking with decades of U.S. diplomacy and worldwide consensus President Donald Trump announced on December 6 the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the transfer of the embassy, located until now in Tel Aviv.

Though US President Donald Trump is not on the list, his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner will represent the Trump family at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. "These include religious and business leaders, journalists, academics, and government representatives from the United States". Trump ordered the move past year, fulfilling a key campaign promise but drawing condemnation from many US allies, who say the move makes it more hard to achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Israel captured East Jerusalem from Jordanian control in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in a move not recognised internationally. Other world powers have not done so, sidestepping one of the thorniest disputes between Israel and the Palestinians, who want their own state with East Jerusalem as the capital.

The signs read in English, Hebrew, and Arabic and were put in place one week before the US officially transfers its embassy to the city, Reuters reported Monday.




View of the US Consulate in Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood, February 24, 2018. The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for state. "Jerusalem is our capital", she said.

Trump said last week that he "may" go to Jerusalem for the opening himself.

A new road sign indicating the way to the new USA embassy in Jerusalem is set up on May 7, 2018.

Donald Trump had promised to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the USA embassy to the city during his election campaign in 2016.
