US President Donald Trump said Friday that his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is his most important decision and the climax of his bid for his first year in office.
Trump, in an interview with the newspaper "Israel Hume" close to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "carried out my word and promised and Oveet."
"Jerusalem was a very important issue for me, so I declared it to be a great capital for you," he said.
"To be more honest, there are also many who reject this decision, but for my part I am an important promise that I have made, and now I have fulfilled it."
"I understand why the former presidents of the United States did not take this decision in the past, because there is a lot of pressure in this regard, and I know perfectly well that the failure to take the decision was because of the enormous pressure on them."
Trump pointed out that his statement at the Davos economic conference when, "the question of Jerusalem was removed from the negotiating table," meant that "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, but the demarcation of the border between the parties is through an agreement between them," adding that " An agreement between the parties in this regard, stressing "the need for great efforts of the parties to reach a peace agreement."
