Jerusalem – An Israeli priest has said US President Donald Trump’s choice to perceive Jerusalem as Israel’s capital does not flag the finish of the two-state arrangement, with Israel willing to allow Palestinians their own autonomous state yet with restricted sway.
Tzachi Hanegbi, pastor of territorial collaboration, said Trump’s dubious choice on December 6 ought not impede Palestinian cases to have possessed East Jerusalem as their capital.
“We guarantee that Jerusalem is our capital and ought not be separated, but rather that is just a claim, not a diktat,” Hanegbi, an individual from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, disclosed to Al Jazeera at his office in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset.
Jerusalem stays at the center of the lasting Israel-Palestine strife.
Israel possessed the city’s eastern division in 1967 and continued to attach it in rupture of global law. Palestinian pioneers need involved East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. Israel, in the mean time, demands that the city is its resolute capital
“Palestinians can guarantee East Jerusalem as their capital and we can arrange a settlement. Despite the fact that we attached East Jerusalem, it is still up for transactions,” said Hanegbi.
