Today (Friday), following the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, thousands of people demonstrated in front of US embassies in Indonesia and Malaysia, carrying signs against President Donald Trump and in support of the Palestinians.
Trump’s announcement drew criticism in many other places around the world. Yesterday, The European Union clarified that the decision doesn’t match the European position and will likely “return us to darker times.”
Russia on Thursday warned that Trump’s speech will have consequences, while British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson claimed the move was “not helpful” and that “the world would like to see some serious announcements by the US about how they see the Middle East peace process and how to bring the two sides together.”
