The Czech Republic has joined the U.S. President Donald Trump in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
President Trump had on Wednesday declared the Holy city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a development that triggered mixed reactions.
A statement issued by the Crech’s foreign ministry, said, “The Czech Republic currently, before the peace between Israel and Palestine is signed, recognizes Jerusalem to be in fact the capital of Israel in the borders of the demarcation line from 1967.
“The Czech Republic considers Jerusalem to be future capital of both states, meaning the State of Israel and the future State of Palestine.
“The Ministry can start considering moving of the Czech embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem only based on results of negotiations with key partners in the region and in the world.”
The President of the United States of America, had earlier on Wednesday announced that his country officially recognized the city of Jerusalem as the capital of State of Israel and announced that the American embassy in Israel would be relocated to Jerusalem
The Czech Republic is one of Israel’s strongest allies.
