President Trump on Wednesday announced that the United States now recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital.


Trump described the move as "a long overdue step" to advance the Middle East peace process, the BBC reported.


The President said his country would support the two-state solution if both Israel and Palestine approved.


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesman had warned that the development would hold dangerous consequences for the region.
