Palestinian ambassador to US recalled

Palestinian ambassador to US recalled

The Palestinian envoy to the United States Husom Zomlot was recalled in protest over the US moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Palestine's foreign ministry statement said the decision "follows the moving of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem," the official Wafa news agency reported.

"When they (the U.S.) opened their embassy in Jerusalem there was a need for a decision from our side and this was our decision," Zomlot told the Associated Press. 

The US relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, with the inauguration coming just months after US President Donald Trump announced the decision in December.
