Palestine, Egypt confer after United States decision on Jerusalem

Palestine, Egypt confer after United States decision on Jerusalem

The tension surrounding US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel continues to grow as senior Fatah official Jibril Rajoub said Thursday evening that US Vice President Mike Pence, who is due to visit the Palestinian Authority this month, is not invited. Rajoub also calls for Arab officials not to meet with Pence.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says Wednesday's move by President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital has effectively ended that entirely.

A spokesperson for the vice president did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.

According to Palestine's official Wafa news agency, the two men discussed the implications of U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement America would relocate its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. According to Palestinian officials, the U.S. moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem or recognizing the city as Israel's capital is equivalent to siding with Israel's claim to all of Jerusalem.

He is also expected to visit Bethlehem in the West Bank.

Both Israel and Palestine envision Jerusalem as their future capital, and Israel's definition of Jerusalem has expanded dramatically over the years, including large amounts of occupied Palestinian territory into a "greater Jerusalem".

On Wednesday, the USA president announced his decision - despite widespread opposition across the Middle East - to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israel has long considered Jerusalem its capital, though the global community has declined for decades to recognize the city as such.
