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

Adjust Comment Print

Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, senior White House aide Jared Kushner, will be part of the United States presidential delegation, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Approximately 800 American and Israeli visitors are expected at the inauguration of the new embassy in Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood, but officials from other countries have also been invited. Israel has made repeated offers of a two-state solution, once even offering to internationalize Jerusalem, but the Palestinians rejected them.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had hosted OIC emergency summit on December 13 at Ankara where most countries had strongly condemned Trump's move.

In March Guatemala's president, Jimmy Morales, said that his country would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 16, two days after the USA move.

"This is not a dream". Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its "eternal and undivided" capital which it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War in 1967.

Members of the Presidential Delegation included: David M. Friedman, Ambassador to Israel; Steven T. Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury; Jared Kushner, Senior Advisor to the President; Ivanka Trump, Assistant to the President and Advisor to the President; and Jason D. Greenblatt, Special Representative for International Negotiations.

"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 newspaper Israel Hayom.

Last year's decision by the Trump administration to move the embassy to Jerusalem was harshly criticized by the global community.
