Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today in Davos, met with US President Donald Trump and issued the following statement:
“Mr. President, I want to say something, because this is the first meeting we’ve had since your historic decision to recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital and to move the embassy and now to expedite the movement of the embassy to Yerushalayim.
And I want to say that this is a historic decision that will be forever etched in the hearts of our people for generations to come. People say that this pushes peace backward. I say it pushes peace forward, because it recognizes history, it recognizes the present reality. And peace can only be built on the basis of truth. By recognizing history, you’ve made history. And we will always remember that.”
