Majority of Diplomats to Boycott US Embassy Opening Ceremony in Jerusalem

86 diplomats received invitation from the Israeli Foreign Ministry to attend the US embassy’s opening ceremony in Jerusalem, but most of them have decided to boycott the event, media sources reported.

According to The Times of Israel, EU diplomats will decline the invitation in protest of US Trump’s unilateral decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon reportedly said:

On May 9, Hadashot TV reported that several EU states, including the UK, Germany, and France, are going to boycott the event.
