President Trump has announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Mr Trump described the move as “a long overdue step” to advance the Middle East peace process.

The president said the US would support a two-state solution, if approved by both the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Ahead of the decision, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned it would have “dangerous consequences” for the region.

Meanwhile, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in Ankara that his country would sever all ties with Israel if the recognition happened by Trump, saying “Jerusalem is a red line.”
