CNN: Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
President of the United States Donald Trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This Wednesday, December 6, said CNN.

"I decided that it was time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Israel is a sovereign state that has the right to decide on the location of its own capital, "the American leader said.

He also instructed the State Department to begin work on the transfer of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The US President called the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital "an absolutely correct step."

On the decision of Trump became known on December 2. During the election campaign, Trump promised to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In January, it was reported that the parties started negotiations on this issue.

Israel proclaimed Jerusalem its capital after the end of the War of Independence in 1949. In 1967, after the Six-Day War, he seized East Jerusalem and united it with the West, but the UN did not recognize this. Embassies of countries that have diplomatic relations with Israel are located mainly in Tel Aviv, Ramat-Gan and Herzliya.
