Press Release

Washington, D.C.  U.S. Congressman Darren Soto released the following statement today following the Trump Administration’s decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel:

“The United States has traditionally located our embassies in nations’ capitals. Accordingly, our U.S. Embassy should ultimately be in Jerusalem, the Capital of Israel. I do remain concerned, though, about the timing and abrupt manner of this announcement. Over the long term, we must continue to be deeply committed to the peace process and a two-state solution for the Jewish and Palestinian peoples.”
