Gaza5may1RAMALLAH (PNIC):-U.S. President Donald Trump informed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday that he intends to move the U.S. Embassy to Occupied Jerusalem.

Trump notified in a telephone call with Mahmoud Abbas of his intention to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Occupied Jerusalem, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Abbas’s spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah said in a statement that President Abbas warned of the dangerous consequences such a decision would have to the peace process and to the security and stability of the region and of the world.

The statement did not say whether Trump elaborated on the timing of such a move.

Abbas reportedly relayed to the U.S. President that any announcement that might alter the long-held U.S. policy regarding Occupied Jerusalem will have serious fallouts.

Abbas stressed that such a move will have detrimental consequences on the peace process and the prospects for the internationally endorsed two-state solution.

There will be no Palestinian state without East Jerusalem as its capital in accordance with the international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace initiative, Abbas was further quoted as stating.

Abu Rdainah added that contacts have been held by Abbas with world leaders to prevent such an “intolerable” move.
