Israel’s foreign ministry and its missions abroad have been instructed to put out feelers to see if other countries are willing to follow US president Donald Trump’s lead in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and also move their embassies to it.
At the behest of Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu, the foreign ministry told embassies to start holding meetings with officials of other friendly countries to sense their positions about the step that was taken by Trump and if their regimes could be ready to follow suit.
After Trump signed his declaration over Occupied Jerusalem, Netanyahu called on other countries to follow suit.
Israeli officials already claimed that Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte and the Czech Republic together with EU member states were likely to follow in Trump’s footsteps.
