United States Opens Its Israeli Embassy In Jerusalem

Location: Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel
May 14, 2018

(L-R) White House senior advisors Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin arrive for the opening ceremony at the US consulate that will act as the new US embassy in the Jewish neighborhood of Arnona, in Jerusalem, Israel, 14 May 2018. The US Embassy in Jerusalem is inaugurated on 14 May following its controversial move from Tel Aviv to the existing US consulate building in Jerusalem. US President Trump in December 2017 recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The decision, condemned by Palestinians who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state, prompted worldwide protests and was met with widespread international criticism.  EPA-EFE/ABIR SULTAN
