The US State Department said on Friday that the United States is planning to open its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem in May.
Mohammed El-Orabi، a former Egyptian foreign minister and a member of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee، expected coordination efforts by Egypt with the countries of the European Union، especially France، to deal with the United States decision، because this decision does not serve the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis.
This decision confirms the US determination to implement its own unilateral decision، which is considered a challenge to the international community to implement its plan.
US president Trump administration will open a U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem in May to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence، a State Department official said Friday.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson approved preliminary security plans for a limited contingent، including the ambassador، David Friedman، and a skeleton staff، to move into a section of the American Consulate in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem، said Steven Goldstein، the under-secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.
