Romania: Frontrunners row about Moving embassy

The decision was welcomed by Israel, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promising global diplomats at the president's residence in Jerusalem yesterday that more countries were close to making the decision.

A US official said the embassy would be located at a provisional site in Jerusalem that now houses a USA consular section.

Romania's President Klaus Iohannis on Friday condemned the Social Democrat-led government's move to transfer the country's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Post writes that Romania will "soon move its embassy to Jerusalem", citing Liviu Dragnea, president of the Chamber of Deputies and a member of Romania's ruling party, who spoke on Thursday.

But, President Klaus Iohannis, who's in charge of Romania's worldwide policy, " said Friday he hadn't been informed which your choice uttered "a great... base".


Iohannis said Romania continues to support the peace process in the Middle East and backs a two-state solution in which Israel and Palestine can live side-by-side in peace.

Prime Minister Viorica Dancila has not officially confirmed the news.

Just a few weeks before the U.S.is scheduled to move its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel's prime minister says other countries are thinking about doing the same.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced in December that the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, infuriating even Washington's Arab allies and dismaying Palestinians who want the eastern part of the city as their capital.

"Moving the embassy to Jerusalem can and I believe will bring short, medium and long-term benefits for Romania and we must use this huge chance and opportunity".
