Benjamin Netanyahu says any peace deal with Palestinians must recognise Jerusalem as Israeli capital


 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hailed US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a “historic landmark” – and said that any peace deal with the Palestinians must include the same recognition.

In a speech in Washington, Mr Trump said his announcement – which also included starting the process of moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – marked the beginning of a new approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Mr Netanyahu, in a pre-recorded video message, urged other countries to follow the US lead by also moving their embassies to the city.
