HaleyTrump's withdrawal from migration summit shows his nationalist colors US, South Sudan must stand together for peace Dems plan ambitious campaign for red-state governorships MORE, the United States ambassador to the U.N., said Wednesday that the United States is not taking sides in the dispute over East Jerusalem despite President Trump's decision to move the USA embassy and recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city.
During his presidential campaign, Trump pledged to move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. "We expect the global community to accept Trump's decision".
The global community regards Jerusalem's eastern sector as occupied territory and says Jerusalem's final status must be negotiated, not unilaterally declared. Trump will still sign the waiver, officials said, because there is no immediate timeline for when the embassy relocation will take place and the law requires cuts to State Department funding if the deadline lapses.
Moments after he finished his address, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a rare voice applauding the president, saying he was "profoundly grateful" to Trump on a "historic day".
The status of Jerusalem is a critical issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with both sides claiming the city as their capital.
Most of the worldwide community does not formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, insisting the issue can only be resolved in negotiations - a point reiterated by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in the wake of Trump's decision.
Israel seized the largely Arab eastern sector of Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it, claiming both sides of the city as its capital. Previous U.S. administrations had resisted moves that could be seen as prejudging the city's final status, for fear of provoking violent reactions, alienating Muslim allies and further undermining already troubled peace efforts.
Until then, Trump will continue to sign waivers to delay the move once every six months - as the previous presidents did - and the US embassy will stay at its current location on the golden beaches of Tel Aviv.
The last round of fitful peace negotiations brokered by Washington collapsed in 2014.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he did not support Trump's "unilateral" decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and called for calm across the region. Palestinians have been stung by Trump's decision, which they see as adopting Israel's position without regard for their own.
Lebanese President Michel Aoun said the Jerusalem decision was unsafe and threatened the credibility of the United States as a broker of Middle East peace.
French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters on a visit to Algiers the decision "contravenes all rules of worldwide law", adding that the short-term priority was to ensure people stayed calm as it is up to Israelis and Palestinians to continue the peace process.

"(The move) is the culmination of the crime of usurping Palestine and displacing the Palestinian people", said the Syrian state news agency SANA, quoting a foreign ministry source.
"We call upon the US Administration to reconsider this faulty decision which may result in highly negative outcomes and to avoid uncalculated steps that will harm the multicultural identity and historical status of Jerusalem", the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem tweeted on Tuesday that U.S. citizens should avoid areas where crowds have gathered to demonstrate. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said earlier that the United States was trying to destabilize the region and start a war to protect Israel's security. Abbas responded by warning Trump that the move would have "dangerous consequences", according to the Palestinian president's spokesman.
Jordan condemned the US President's move as amounting to a violation of worldwide law and the United Nations charter.
