Theresa May Blasts Trump’s ‘Unhelpful’ Al-Quds Move
Local Editor

The UK disagrees with US President Donald Trump's "unhelpful" decision to recognize al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the capital of ‘Israel', British Prime Minister Theresa May said.

In a statement issued on Wednesday night, May said Trump's declaration earlier in the day jeopardized the "prospects of peace" in the Middle East.

"We disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to ‘Jerusalem' and recognize ‘Jerusalem' as the ‘Israeli' capital before a final status agreement," May said in a statement.

"Our position on the status of ‘Jerusalem' is clear and long-standing: it should be determined in a negotiated settlement between the ‘Israelis' and the Palestinians," May added.

The British leader said London had "no plans to move" its own embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds.

Earlier, she said there a sovereign and viable Palestinian state was a pre-requisite to any two-state solution.

Before Trump's announcement, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also voiced "concern" over the decision, making it clear that London had no intention of following Trump's lead.

"We have no plans ourselves to move our embassy," he told reporters ahead of a NATO summit in Brussels.

For their part, world leaders warned Trump that recognizing al-Quds as the ‘Israeli' capital could spark further tensions in the region.

In his statement, Trump admitted that "there will of course be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement," but "we are confident that ultimately, as we work through these disagreements, we will arrive at a place of greater understanding and cooperation."

Meanwhile, Palestinians vowed to hold three days of protests, with resistance leaders warning that the decision is likely to ignite another Intifada anti-occupation movement.
