UK 'disagrees' with 'unhelpful' US decision on Jerusalem

Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday said the British government disagreed with US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, saying it was "unhelpful" for peace efforts.

"We disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital," she said in a statement. "We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region".
