The European Union chastised President Donald Trump over his hesitation to renew a waiver permitting the US embassy to remain in Tel Aviv, and warned him of “serious repercussions” if the US recognizes Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem.
The EU’s top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, issued a statement Tuesday warning the White House of “consequences” if it either relocated its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, or even formally declared its recognition of the city as Israel’s capital.
“Since early this year, the European Union was clear in its expectation that there can be reflection on the consequences that any decision or unilateral action affecting Jerusalem’s status could have,” Mogherini’s office said in a statement.
“It might have serious repercussions on public opinion in large parts of the world.”
