Jerusalem to Name Train Station After Trump

In touch with 10 countries to shift embassies from Tel Aviv

DFA said that it "has always supported the policy of two states for two peoples as a long-term solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians", adding that the country is willing to play its part in brokering peace in the region.

Earlier this month, Trump recognized the city as Israel's capital, a move that was widely condemned around the world but welcomed in Israel.

The Jerusalem Post quoted the Israeli minister as saying, "The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I chose to name the train station that leads to it after President Trump, following his historic and courageous decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel".

The United States and Israel mustered seven other countries to their side to vote no to the UN resolution.

Israeli daily Yedioth Aharonot reported Wednesday that there will be an additional station along the way, in the Western part of Jerusalem, and that the train will feature a VIP vehicle to transport visiting dignitaries directly from the airport to the Western Wall. Katz intends to name the planned station near the Western Wall after America's 45th president.

Katz made the decisions after he approved Israel Railways' recommendation to build the station in the Old City, expanding the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv train route to the area.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinians claim the city's eastern sector, which was captured by Israel in 1967. "Trump Station" will be walking distance to a number of Jewish and Christian holy sites, in addition to the Temple Mount.

The move comes after Trump unilaterally recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital and has prompted worldwide criticism and sparked protests across the world.

The president campaigned for the White House promising to relocate the embassy, and many expected him to make the decision the first day he took office in January.
