Trump undermining stability with Jerusalem move: Germany's Schulz

Reuters Agency

U.S. President Donald Trump is undermining international stability with his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. embassy there, the leader of Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) said on Wednesday.

Affirming his support for a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians, Martin Schulz said Trump's decision, taken despite warnings from a wide range of U.S. allies, risked setting back the peace process in the Middle East.

Trump is due to announce later on Wednesday that the United States recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move its embassy there, breaking with longtime U.S. policy and possibly stirring unrest.
