PLO: US Embassy Move in Violation of International Commitments

PLO: US Embassy Move in Violation of International Commitments”

A worker hangs a road sign directing to the USA embassy, in the area of the USA consulate in Jerusalem, on May 7, 2018.

Trump announced the move of the embassy to Jerusalem in December, saying that he was making good on U.S. legislation and presidential pledges dating back decades.

"This is not a dream - it's reality", Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said in a statement, after he was witnessed personally putting up street signs saying.

Trump's unilateral decision to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sparked protests and fury around the world, particularly among Muslims who view it as a provocation against the Palestinian people.

However, Hadashot news reported Monday that the country's incoming president, Mario Abdo BenĂ­tez - a member of Cartes's conservative Colorado party - will join the incumbent for the opening of the Jerusalem embassy.

Arab foreign ministers of Arab League member states had also called for worldwide recognition of Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

On the other hand, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would refuse any offer made by the Americans.

Microsoft's Next Windows 10 Update Arrives Monday

All Israeli settlements are seen as illegal under worldwide law and major obstacles to peace as they are built on occupied Palestinian territory.

Trump has been coy as to whether or not he would attend the ceremony, and Monday's statement did not list him as an attendee indicating he will not make an appearance.

He believes, Jerusalem is the undivided and eternal capital of Israel.

Israel's continued occupation of the eastern part of the city is a major offense to Palestinians, so the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital poses a significant setback to the Arab-Israeli peace process.

While Israel views Jerusalem as its capital, Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

During the election campaign, he promised to shift the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
