Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly praised the Trump administration’s move.

“Thank you President Trump for today’s historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jewish people and the Jewish state will be forever grateful,” Netanyahu said.

The recognition, he added, “reflects the president’s commitment to an ancient but enduring truth, to fulfilling his promises and to advancing peace.”

“There is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
