Israeli Foreign Ministry: Paraguay to Move Embassy to Jerusalem

Israeli Foreign Ministry: Paraguay to Move Embassy to Jerusalem

Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who serve as advisers to the president, will also attend.

The U.S. had technically recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital for decades, but past presidents put off transferring the embassy from Tel Aviv to placate the Palestinian contingent.

Also in its statement on Sunday, the POC slammed the Arab cyclists for their "disloyalty" and for taking part in a "free service for the [Israeli] occupation that does not recognize worldwide laws, resolutions and charters of the United Nations on the rights of the Palestinian people and continues to deny the right of the Palestinian Arab people to establish their independent state on their land with al-Quds as its capital".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not on the list.

Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, senior White House aide Jared Kushner, will also be part of the U.S. presidential delegation, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, added the White House.

The entire Jerusalem al-Quds is now under Israel's control, while the regime also claims the city's eastern part, which hosts the third holiest Muslim site.

"Those who will attend the ceremony will send a signal that they are encouraging the trampling of worldwide legitimacy and the inherent rights of the Palestinian people", Erekat said as quoted in the statement.

In Jerusalem, there were at least three road sign that says the U.S. Embassy in three languages: English, Hebrew and Arabic.

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

At the consulate site, mechanical diggers cleared scrubland as workers posted embassy signs along city roads and hung U.S., Israeli and Jerusalem flags from street lights.

Still, local residents are excited about the new move. The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for State.

Approximately 800 American and Israeli visitors are expected at the inauguration of the new embassy in Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood, but officials from other countries have also been invited.

"We're still waiting to see if the United States president will come here for the opening move".

Since the creation of the Jewish state it has not recognised Jerusalem as its capital and considers that the final status of the city must be negotiated with the Palestinians.

The Trump administration has left the diplomatic door open to a negotiated settlement between Israel and the Palestinians on defining Jerusalem's borders.
