“There is no greater gift than that! The most just and correct move. Thanks friend!” Katz said in a Twitter posting.
A US official who confirmed the embassy move from Tel Aviv said it would take place in May.
Israel will this year celebrate the anniversary on April 19/20. Israel declared its independence in 1948 and the new state was recognised by then-U.S. President Harry Truman on May 14.
I would like to congratulate Donald Trump, the President of the US @POTUS on his decision to transfer the US Embassy to our capital on Israel’s 70th Independence Day. There is no greater gift than that! The most just and correct move. Thanks friend!
