DescriptionPresident Donald Trump has announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital, overturning decades of official US policy.

Mr Trump described the move as "a long overdue step" to advance the Middle East peace process.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas responded to the decision by saying the US could no longer be a peace broker.

The decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital is a reversal of decades of US foreign policy, and differs sharply from the rest of the international community's view on Jerusalem's status.
