Trump Recognises Jerusalem As Capital Of Israel

US President Donald Trump has announced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“This is nothing more or less than the recognition of reality,” Trump said in a speech announcing the United States’ view about the contentious move on Wednesday.

He re-iterated that the United States was still committed to the Middle East peace process and that it would support the two-state solution.

Trump expressed confidence that disagreements over Jerusalem would be resolved, and said Vice President Pence would travel to Jerusalem in the coming days.

The United States Embassy would now be relocated from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.
