European Union seriously concerned about Trump's Jerusalem decision

  • US envoy brushed off Trump's 'little criticism' upon arrival

Earlier on Wednesday, the USA president announced his decision - despite widespread opposition across the Middle East - to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Ms Mogherini said the European Union and its member states would continue to respect the worldwide consensus on the location of their diplomatic representations in Israel until the final status of Jerusalem was resolved.

The European Union's top diplomat on Tuesday warned against "any action that would undermine" peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, saying the status of Jerusalem should be decided in talks between the two.

Mogherini said, "The focus should therefore remain on the efforts to restart the peace process and avoiding any action that would undermine such efforts". A crucial part of that worldwide consensus has also been the refusal to recognise Israel's claim to Jerusalem as its capital.

In an earlier telephone conversation with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on a possible United States announcement on the status of Jerusalem, Mogherini warned of the consequences such a decision would have on public opinion worldwide.

During his election campaign past year, Trump repeatedly promised to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The move may also strain relations with Turkey, a strong economic and military ally to the U.S. Turkey's president said his country could cut diplomatic ties with Israel if President Donald Trump goes through with the decision.

Trump was expected to make the announcement Monday, but postponed it amid a wave of public calls and private pleas from world leaders. The city is home to holy sites for Christians, Muslims and Jews, and the Palestinians want to establish Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

"This step, if taken, will be in contradiction of the principle of not affecting final status negotiations, and contradicts global resolutions that emphasize the historical and firm rights of the Palestinian people regarding Jerusalem", said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.
