Israel’s sovereignty over the entire Jerusalem is not acknowledged by the International community
While meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Donald Trump assured that after attaining the position of U.S President, he would give recognition to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Trump made the statement at Trump Tower in New York, where his meeting took place with Netanyahu on Sunday.
The statement, if applied, would bring about a change into U.S foreign policy, since presently every country in the world has based its embassy in Tel Aviv, considering it as Israel’s capital. Ever since Israel established itself in West Jerusalem, and annexed East Jerusalem, after a Six Day War in 1967, the status of Jerusalem did not evolve. Therefore the international community has also not recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Trump has shared his will to move the U.S embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as a gesture to recognize Jerusalem as “the new Israel’s capital”.
According to CBS reports, Hillary Clinton has also met Netanyahu, which took place for not more than an hour.
