The Serbian government has decided to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem. Following the government of Israel’s decision to establish diplomatic relations with Kosovo, the government of Kosovo has announced it will open its embassy in Jerusalem

 

 

Minister of Foreign Affairs Gabi Ashkenazi: “I welcome the decision of the Serbian government to move its embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. This is an important and courageous step that testifies to the depth of relations between Israel and Serbia and will lead to the strengthening of the friendship between the two nations.”


Following the government of Israel’s decision to establish diplomatic relations with Kosovo and Kosovo's announcement of the opening of an embassy in Jerusalem, FM Ashkenazi said:


“We view the decision of Serbia and Kosovo to establish embassies in Jerusalem as a symbolic step towards promoting peace between these countries. The city of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Israel, will constitute a bridge of peace to the entire world. I call on other countries to follow in their footsteps and move their embassies to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.”


FM Ashkenazi thanked US President Trump and the US administration for leading the move and for its regional and international leadership:


“The US administration continues to lead to significant diplomatic breakthroughs, both in our relations with Serbia and Kosovo, as in the promotion of normalization and the historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Israel has no better ally than the United States.”
