CIR denounces Conway’s remarks about moving U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

Council on International Relations in Palestine denounces top aide of president-elect Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway’s remarks in which she said that moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem will be a major focus for Donald Trump.

The council considers that any thought of moving the American embassy to Jerusalem would lead the region toward more violence and instability.

CIR calls on the new American administration to be an honest broker between the Palestinians and Israelis, and to abide by the international community resolutions that don’t recognize Jerusalem as a capital of “Israel”, bearing in mind that no country has yet its embassy in the Holy City.
