NDP STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ANNOUNCEMENT ON JERUSALEM

“President Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is dangerous and misguided. His decision is contrary to international law and UN Security Council resolutions, and will certainly undermine attempts for a peace process. This decision has been condemned across the world, including by the UN and the governments of France, the UK, Sweden, Egypt, and Jordan.
 
This is a devastating day for those who believe in peace, justice and security in the Middle East. 
 
Where is Canada’s voice in protest of this decision? New Demcrats urge Canada to condemn this decision and formally dnounce the American government.”
