US President Donald Trump’s declaration that the US will recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not lawful and will not contribute to the peace process in the Middle East, President Mustafa Akıncı has warned.

President Mustafa Akıncı noted that US President Trump’s decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of the State of Israel and the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will not make any contribution to the peace process in the Middle East.

In his statement on the subject, President Akıncı said that:

“The decision of US President Trump to declare Jerusalem the capital of the State of Israel and move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will not make any contribution to the peace process in the Middle East.

“This decision does not conform to the historical realities of the region and international law. It would be appropriate that this decision, which is obviously more likely to increase the conflicts and tensions in the region, should not be implemented”.
