The recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital by the US will block for years to come the negotiation process between Israel and Palestine, Arab world specialist Prof. Vladimir Chukov told FOCUS Radio
this morning. He said the move by US President Donald Trump was unconsidered, but it might also aim to put pressure on Palestine for the recognition of Israel by the Arab world. “What is the idea? Through the unblocking of the negotiation process Israel would be recognised by the Arab world, or at least most of it,” he explained.
Jerusalem should have a free status, according to Vladimir Chukov. Tension may escalate and Trump’s move could have the opposite effect, attracting Middle East radicals, he warned.
