Germany and Romania Will Not Move Their Embassies to Jerusalem

During an interview with Israeli TV on Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reiterated her long-standing policy on Jerusalem, assuring that her country will not relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Although Germany remains one of Israel’s closest allies, Merkel was also critical of Netanyahu’s vehement opposition to the nuclear deal with Iran and his government’s settlement expansion in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, the Presidential Administration of Romania denied the publicly circulated news about the Government’s intention to launch the process of relocating its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

This official statement, the President of Romania completely contradicts Liviu Dragnea, Social Democrat leader and lower house speaker. In recent days, Dragnea had publicly announced the approval by the government of a memorandum deciding to start the process of moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
