Israeli authorities begin putting up road signs for U.S. embassy in Jerusalem

The White House released a statement on Monday about the delegation it will send to next week's ceremony in honor of the U.S. Embassy's relocation to Jerusalem.

Barkat personally affixed the first of several new road signs pointing to the location of the new embassy, which is primarily comprised of the complex formerly utilized as the US consulate in Jerusalem.

The statement announcing Trump's decision listed the embassy's opening in "Jerusalem, Israel", the first known time the disputed city has been clearly listed as Israeli territory in an official USA statement after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

The announcement follows President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump's move was met with widespread protests in most countries in the world, except Israel and regional USA allies.

Mr Liberman has been in Washington visiting Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and adviser, and Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt.

The move prompted global condemnation and triggered a wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories.

It remains unclear if President Trump will be on hand to officially open the diplomatic headquarters. The leaders of the OIC member states condemned Trump's decision. This was aimed to nullify the controversial United States decision. Angry with Dancilas's proposal on Jerusalem, he publicly called on her to resign. U.S. was the only country opposing the resolution.

Paraguay will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem by the end of May, a Paraguay government spokesman and the Israeli foreign ministry said on Monday.

The first three seasons of " Arrested Development " aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006. So, we'll see", she said . "I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas".

The waiver expired on December 1.

The question of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "I thank President Trump for making this historic moment come to fruition".

Israel claims the entire city as its eternal capital.

The move overturns decades of global consensus on Jerusalem, a highly contested city, half of which was occupied and annexed by Israel following the 1967 War. Israel has made repeated offers of a two-state solution, once even offering to internationalize Jerusalem, but the Palestinians rejected them.

The last round of peace talks on a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip collapsed in 2014.

Surprisingly the global community, including the USA administration, does not recognise Israel's jurisdiction and ownership of Jerusalem.

Israel has expressed hopes that other countries will follow suit, though the move was widely condemned in the global community.

On December 2, 2017, US President Donald Trump had formally announced the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing almost seven decades of American foreign policy and ordered for the relocation of the US embassy.

Signs are going up for the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
