Ten Countries Said To Be In Talks To Move Embassies To Jerusalem

While Israel's deputy foreign minister did not name which nations could make the declaration, countries like Honduras, Romania, the Philippines, and the Czech Republic could be on board after they either voted against or abstained from the U.N. vote.

Cayetano denied a wire report quoting an Israeli public radio that 10 countries, including the Philippines, are studying the possibility of moving their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem after talks with Israel.

"We have communicated clearly to all our friends in the Middle East that there hasn't been any discussion or move to move our embassy from Tel Aviv", Cayetano said.

The development assumes significance as no country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

Israel is in touch with "at least ten countries" over the possible transfer of their embassies to Jerusalem after the United States recognised the city as Israel's capital, a deputy minister said on Monday.

He instead stressed that Manila supports the two-state solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, saying that it wishes to play a role of peacemaker.

"We are for peaceful resolution of conflict", he said. "There's going to be a balancing act".

In December 2016, the Israeli Haartz newspaper published a report stressing that "Kellyanne Conway said that Trump is determined to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem after he steps into the White House".

After this, the United Nations General Assembly had adopted by a decisive vote of 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, a motion rejecting the U.S. decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The move would in effect recognize the disputed city as Israel's capital. "I know this because the Foreign Affairs Ministry is now engaged in an important and significant central process with these states, some of which are in Europe".
