"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence said Tuesday at an event in NY organized by the Israeli mission to the United Nations in partnership with the World Jewish Congress marking the 70th anniversary of the U.N. General Assembly vote to recognize Israel on November 29, 1947.
Israeli officials in Jerusalem reportedly believe that there is a high probability that US President Donald Trump will announce in the coming days an official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, an announcement that will likely indicate a US embassy transfer is underway.
Pence also spoke on the need for the Jewish State to remain independent from the Palestinians - going against the pleas of the U.N., Arab world and other pro-Palestinian diplomats pushing for a two-state solution. "In 1897, Theodor Herzl dreamed of the impossible".
President Trump promised to move the embassy on the campaign trail.
The report, to which there was no immediate confirmation, followed a speech US Vice President Mike Pence gave a day earlier in which he said that Trump was "actively considering" the step. "Under our administration, America will always stand with Israel".
Israeli Transportation Minister Israel Katz, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and Ron Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, will address the audience at the event, which was organized by the Israeli mission to the UN.
Danon also addressed the event, saying that the United Nations vote paved the way for the creation of the Middle East's "beacon of democracy".
"O$3 ur administration is working with Congress to overcome some of the Iran deal's most glaring problems", the emphatic VP stressed.
He also touched on the president's commitment to push for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, noting that Trump has made progress toward reaching that goal in recent months.
He also commented on US efforts at the UN, repeating USA envoy to the UN Nikki Haley's words that "the days of Israel-bashing at the United Nations are over".
In 1995, Congress made it U.S. policy to move the embassy to Jerusalem, symbolically endorsing Israel's claim on the city as its capital, but the law contained a clause that has allowed each president since to issue and renew a six-month waiver on carrying out the move. Every president since the law was passed, including Trump, has exercised the national security waiver, an action that must be taken every six months.
