The white house used the words «Jerusalem, Israel» during the broadcast of a video about the visit of the President of Donald trump, which indicates the change of concept introduced the previous us administration.
About it writes on Tuesday, may 23, the Jewish news Agency JTA.
This inscription was unveiled on a video broadcast press conference, which was held last Monday at the residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
We will remind that official Washington has not yet developed a clear position regarding the status of the Jewish capital. Israeli politicians have urged the White house to move the U.S. Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Obama administration has twice corrected photo captions, in 2011 and 2012, correcting «Jerusalem, Israel» to «Jerusalem,» which reflects its policies in relation to this city. The same course was maintained and the administration of President George W. Bush. Note that the U.S. Congress in 1995, has officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
White house policy today remains controversial. David Friedman, U.S. Ambassador to Israel, said that he would prefer to be in Jerusalem, and the UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced that he considers Jerusalem part of the Jewish state. At the same time, the Secretary of state Rex Tillerson, answering questions of journalists during a tour of the Middle East, refused to admit it.
On the eve of the tramp during a visit to Israel, visited the wailing Wall, located in the Eastern part of Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinians, but refused to Prime Minister Netanyahu, who wanted to accompany him.
