Israel Expects President Trump to Move Embassy to Jerusalem Within Days

The ramifications of such a move, according to the same sources, would be that Trump would instruct his staff to begin preparations to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

"Israel didn't need a [U.N.] resolution to call for its existence because its right to exist is self-evident and timeless", he said.

"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence told the gathering, hosted by Israel's Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon.

"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence told the gathering of United Nations ambassadors, diplomats and Jewish leaders. The report said the declaration was expected within days, possibly as soon as Sunday.

Shifting the building could be seen as a de facto recognition of Israel's claim over the whole city, including predominantly Palestinian east Jerusalem.

Taking that step now could prompt terrorists to whip up anger, frustration and desperation in order to spread their ideologies, he warned.

During the campaign, then-candidate Trump promised that if elected, he would follow through on the move postponed for more than two decades by successive US administrations.

Under the terms of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, the waiver must be signed every six months. It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

Under the proposed 1947 UN Partition Plan, the city was meant to be internationally administered, due to its importance to the three Abrahamic religions.

"If the USA relocates the embassy to Jerusalem, it will determine the city's fate by recognising it as the capital of the occupying state, before even embarking on the peace negotiations it's trying to achieve", Shaheen told Al Jazeera. "We have nothing to announce", said press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Pence, who is to visit Jerusalem next month, said he would address the Israeli parliament during the trip and "bring a message of resolve and commitment to draw the United States and Israel even closer together, and to stand together in defense of all that we hold dear".

Support for Israel is a key issue in United States right-wing politics.

"But this move would make it clear to the rest of the world that there is no real sovereignty, and that the PA has no say over anything that happens in Jerusalem", added Khalifa.

"So, it's really part of the wider context that started with the annexation", she said.
