US to Move Embassy to Jerusalem
May 14 , 2018
The US would soon have a new embassy in the city of Jerusalem. The move, however, has got a mixed reaction. While the move is being praised by Israel, it is being condemned by Palestinians through mass protests. The ceremony would take place on Monday in the attendance of senior US officials and Trumps' daughter Ivanka and also her husband, Jared Kushner. According to the sources, most of the EU envoys would not be present at the ceremony.
The embassy was earlier at Tel Aviv and changing the location of the embassy has not gone down well with Palestinians as they claim East Jerusalem to be the future Palestinian state's capital.
