(Worthy News) - The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is set on Thursday to denounce US President Donald Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.

“The assembly regrets the declaration of the president of the United States of America on 6 December 2017 that it was ‘time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel’ and that preparations would start ‘to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,’” stated the latest draft of a resolution before the assembly.

Israel, which has a delegation in Strasbourg, where the council’s Parliamentary Assembly has gathered, believes the resolution’s passage is assured, but is hoping to add some amendments. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
