Palestinians Warn U.K. Against Moving Embassy to Jerusalem

HeadlineOct 04, 2022

Palestinian leaders are condemning a proposal by Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss to move the United Kingdom’s Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. So far, the U.S. is virtually alone among nations in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, after then-President Trump relocated the U.S. Embassy there in 2018. Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh spoke from Ramallah on Monday.

Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh: “Any change in the status quo in Jerusalem would undermine the two-state solution and will be considered a tacit recognition of the city’s annexation to Israel, which will encourage the occupying state and the settlers’ radical groups to continue their aggression toward our people and toward the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.”
