Russia announced today that it would consider West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, making it one of the first countries in the world to do so.

The Russian foreign ministry says it believes East Jerusalem should become the capital of a future Palestinian state.

β€œAt the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the ministry says.
