Trump’s Decision Is An Irresponsible Step, Says Saudi Arabia


The government of Saudi Arabia expressed its “great disappointment” at the US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to relocate its embassy to it, according to a statement released by the Saudi Royal Court on Thursday.

“The Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had previously warned of the serious consequences of such an irresponsible and unwarranted step,” the Royal Court said.

“The Kingdom expresses its denunciation and deep regret that the administration has taken this step, as it represents a great bias against the historic and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem,” the statement said.
