Belarus embassy in Israel to continue work despite Middle East tensions

A deal of the century is cancelled. The leader of the Hamas movement announced the end of the peace process in the Middle East and called on Palestine for the uprising.

The situation became hotter after the United States recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

On December 7, the Belarusian Foreign Ministry commented on the situation around the status of the city. As it became known, the Embassy of Belarus in Israel will continue its work in Tel Aviv.

Dmitry Mironchik, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus: 
We proceed from the premise that this issue should be resolved in the format of direct negotiations of the parties involved on an existing international legal basis in full accordance with the current resolutions of the UN Security Council and previously concluded agreements.

The decision of Donald Trump was not shared by the leaders of several European countries. The UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on this issue. The meeting is scheduled for December 8.
