WASHINGTON: The United States is expected to open its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem in May, a US official told Reuters on Friday.

US President Donald Trump announced last year that the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, setting in motion the move of the embassy to Jeruslaem from Tel Aviv.

    May of what year? Takes a long time for USA to build/secure an embassy – takes more than 3 months to get architect & security people to agree let alone build anything – especially in the Middle East. Recommend
