India Calls for Early Resumption of Israel-Palestine Talks

Israeli Transportation Minister Israel Katz, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and Ron Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, will address the audience at the event, which was organized by the Israeli mission to the UN.

"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence said Tuesday at an event in NY organized by the Israeli mission to the United Nations marking the 70th anniversary of the U.N. General Assembly vote to recognize Israel on November 29, 1947.

In a speech commemorating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations vote that led to the founding of the state of Israel, Mr. Pence told the audience that Mr. Trump's campaign promise about the embassy move is still being debated.

The Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, while Israel has declared the entire city as its capital. "It's a question of when, not if", a U.S. official said on June 1.

He said America "stands with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, and her fight is our fight".

Seventy years since the adoption of General Assembly resolution 181, a sovereign and independent State of Palestine has yet to emerge alongside the State of Israel.

The move would violate a longstanding USA policy, which maintains that Jerusalem should remain on neutral ground until the city's status is determined during peace talks.
