US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital: Trump declares


US President Donald Trump has declared that the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In the course of a speech at White House, Trumph said: "I have determined that it is time to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous Presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering."

He added that his administration would also begin a process of moving the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This decision is a long overdue one to advance the peace process. The decision marked the start of a "new approach" to solving the thorny conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
