Pence re­vives talk on Is­rael em­bassy move

New Straits Times - - World -

WASH­ING­TON: Vice-Pres­i­dent Mike Pence on Sun­day re­vived talk of the pos­si­bil­ity the United States may move its em­bassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, say­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump was se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing the mat­ter. Dur­ing last year’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, Trump’s team spoke of­ten about such a movie. But since tak­ing of­fice, the con­tentious is­sue ap­pears to have moved to the back­burner. The re­lo­ca­tion is strongly op­posed by many US al­lies as the Pales­tini­ans also claim the city as their cap­i­tal.
