(OTTAWA) –

“This decision by President Trump undermines the international consensus on this issue, and signals clearly to the world that this U.S. administration cannot serve as a broker of peace between the parties. A new approach to peace between Israel and Palestine is sorely needed, which must be based on adherence to international law,” said Elizabeth May
(MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands).

“Canada’s official policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict rightly rejects Israel’s illegal annexation of East Jerusalem, and recognizes Israel’s settlements in East Jerusalem as violating the Fourth Geneva Convention. Trump’s recklessness is already costing lives and worsening security in the region,” continued Ms. May.

“We call upon the Trudeau administration to use its diplomatic leverage to encourage the White House to reverse this dangerous and provocative move. I am confident Canadians of all political stripes acknowledge that Trump’s values fail to square with our own,” concluded Ms. May.
