The Associated Press news agency, citing its own sources at the White House, also reports Donald Trump’s readiness to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. In this case, it is added that Trump is not yet ready to decide on the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem.
This summer, the US Senate adopted a declaration on the occasion of the 50 anniversary of the “reunification of Jerusalem”. From the text of the declaration:
From 1948 to 1967, Jerusalem existed as a divided city, and the citizens of Israel could not freely come and pray in the temples of the city, at the Wailing Wall. In 1967, Jerusalem was reunited. We are pleased that all Israelis can now pray in the temples of Jerusalem. We have adopted a resolution recognizing this city as the Israeli capital.
Since the summer of 2017, the United States has been awaiting Trump's decision on this issue.
