Recently, the President of the USA, Donald Trump announced that the embassy of the USA in Tel Aviv, Israel will be moved to Jerusalem recognizing it as the capital of Israel. As predictable, this has created outrage in the whole world especially in Middle East. We condemn the US President’s move as it drags the Middle East region’s peace to a more vulnerable state.

The Palestinian Committee for Peace and Solidarity (PCPS) salutes all peace loving people all over the world for their position of solidarity with the Palestinian people and their condemnation of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as “capital of Israel” which constitutes a violation of International law and all relevant UN resolutions about Jerusalem which consider Jerusalem as part of occupied the Palestinian land and its eastern part and as a capital of future Palestinian state.

El Movimiento Cubano por la Paz y la Soberanía de los Pueblos manifiesta su firme condena a la decisión unilateral del Presidente de los EEUU Donald Trump de reconocer a Jerusalén como la capital del Estado de Israel, destrozando con su firma la diplomacia política sostenida durante decenios por los sucesivos gobernantes de esa nación, y desoyendo las opiniones de los mandatarios de las grandes potencias europeas y musulmanas.

The developments in the Middle East over recent months have taken a sharp turn towards militarisation and outright conflict - and even the start of a new war in the region due to the meddling of the US, Saudi and Israeli governments in fanning the flames in the region.

The US President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist Israeli State, and the decision of establishing in this city the US Embassy in Israel, are affronts to international law, a violation of the United Nations resolutions, and an abject offense to the Palestinian people’s dignity, honor and rights. They constitute another obstacle for the realization of the Palestinian national cause and are a provocation of war.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) firmly condemns the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the announced intention to transfer the US embassy to this city, a decision that entails an authentic act of aggression upon the Palestinian people, with unpredictable and dangerous consequences for peace in the whole region.

The 18th Congress of the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE) concluded successfully on 2nd and 3rd December at the town hall of Chaidari/Attica its deliberations.

The Congress was attended by 278 delegates coming from 58 Peace Committees from all over the country (out of which the 18 were from the capital area).

The World Peace Council (WPC) condemns strongly the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as capital of Israel and transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The US decision is a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions on the status of the city as part of occupied Palestinian territories. The decision is a proof of the bias of the leader of world imperialists and of his open support to the Israeli occupation and of its continuation.

It is with great concern that the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) sees the currently ongoing enhancement of the process of militarization of the European Union (EU). Militarism is, along with the curtailment of the sovereignty of States by supranational institutions dominated by the great powers and the promotion of neoliberal policies, which attack economic and social rights, one of the cornerstones of the EU - the creation of a future European army, despite persisting contradictions, being a goal long pursued by the major European powers.
