Sadiq Khan terms US move regarding Jerusalem ‘dangerous’

Posted In: News Date:Dec 7th, 2017

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has expressed serious concern over US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and described his speech as “dangerous”.

“I’m very concerned…Trump doesn’t understand war politics, the offence he is causing,” he said while speaking in Geo News programme Capital Talk.

Sadiq said the whole world needs to unite to “tell Trump that he is wrong” and lobby to get the US to change its stance.

Trump on Wednesday recognised the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital — a historic decision that overturns decades of US policy and risks triggering a fresh spasm of violence in the Middle East.

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel," Trump said from the White House. "It's the right thing to do."
