WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

“Moving our embassy to Jerusalem is a long overdue recognition to the undeniable core of Israel. Today’s announcement by President Trump comes at a time when reaffirming the strong alliance between the United States and Israel is critical towards stabilizing and advancing diplomacy in the region. We remain committed to peaceful solutions to conflict in the region and working with our partners.”

Cramer signed a letter in January urging President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate our embassy.
