On Wednesday, President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and directed the State Department to begin the process of relocating the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Trump’s decision, expressing profound gratitude on behalf of the people of Israel.

Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer also thanked President Trump, tweeting an image of an Israeli flag and a U.S. flag displayed proudly next to each other on the old city wall of Jerusalem.

Other countries have expressed an interest in following the United States’ lead and recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the sovereign nation of Israel.

This is a historic day for the sovereign nations of the United States and Israel.
