WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump says unless peace is established between Israel and Palestine, the US embassy will not be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.
“I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem,” Trump told former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on the TBN program “Huckabee.”
“If we can make peace between the Palestinians and Israel, I think it’ll lead to ultimately peace in the Middle East, which has to happen,” he said.
Asked about the time of a possible embassy move, the president said, “We’re going to make a decision in the not too distant future.”
During his 2016 campaign, Trump came up with the controversial proposal that caused a lot of discussions.
Palestinians oppose the move and have repeatedly warned Trump against such an action. Also, the Palestine Liberation Organization warned the US against the relocation of the embassy.
