Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi spoke with his American counterpart Rex Tillerson on Tuesday and told him that Washington’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has “halted political solutions in the region.”
Safadi tweeted: “I spoke with Secretary Tillerson on the fallouts of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I informed him about the Arab League stand against it as a violation of the Intl law. I also stressed that the two-states solution is the only path to regional peace. Only radicals benefit from growing tension and the absence of horizons.”
In a very controversial step, Trump on Wednesday recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, and announced that he will be moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying this will enhance the peace process between Israel and Palestinians.
Since then, many demonstrations condemning this move were held across many Islamic countries and the world.
