White House: Trump Will Not Attend US Embassy Opening in Jerusalem

White House: Trump Will Not Attend US Embassy Opening in Jerusalem”

"By taking Jerusalem off the table, I wanted to make it clear that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and as for specific boundaries, I would support what both sides agreed to", Trump told an Israeli newspaper.

But, unfortunately, from the Indian side, there is no sign of shifting their embassy to Jerusalem!

Israeli occupation authorities on Monday began putting up road signs in the occupied city of Jerusalem, which reads "The American Embassy", in preparation for its opening next week in synchronization with the Palestinian Nakba Day (catastrophe) and Israeli day of independence.

"We're still waiting to see if the United States president will come here for the opening move". The independence of the modern State of Israel was achieved in 1948 after more than 60 years of efforts by Zionist leaders to establish sovereignty and self-determination in Palestine. In response, a delighted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the Israel-India relation as "a marriage decided in the heaven and solemnized in the world".

President Donald Trump announced the decision to shift the embassy in December as the administration prepared its peace plan for the region.

Pres. Trump has left the question of his participation in the embassy opening in doubt for months, saying that he might come. The Palestinian leadership and most of the global community consider East Jerusalem as occupied territory and the future capital of a sovereign Palestinian state.

"By recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the seat of its government, we're recognizing reality", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a visit to Israel last week.

The current USA move will overturn decades of worldwide consensus on Jerusalem, a highly contested city.

While Israel views Jerusalem as its capital, Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Other U.S. presidents have promised the embassy move but never acted on it because of its politically charged symbolism.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will reportedly lead a delegation of 250 people from the US to the opening ceremony including around 40 politicians, among them Republican senators Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham as well as Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt.
