A State Department spokesman said the president was planning to reopen the US consulate in Jerusalem to strengthen ties with the Palestinians.
According to News i, quoting the website of the Russian news network Al-Youm, US State Department spokesman Ned Price stressed that Washington intends to reopen the US consulate in Jerusalem, but the deadline for this action has not been determined yet.
He added that the United States wants to prevent any unilateral action to destroy the two-state solution to the conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Ned Price also stated that the Kingdom of Oman plays an important and positive role in regional affairs, especially the Yemeni crisis.
In March 2019, former US President Donald Trump announced the closure of the US consulate in Jerusalem.
On the other hand, the Hebrew-language media reported a delay in the opening of the US consulate in East Jerusalem at the request of the Israeli side.
I24 reported, quoting Palestinian, Israeli and American sources, that the administration of US President Joe Biden delayed the reopening of the US consulate in East Jerusalem until the approval of the new Israeli government budget in November.
The site also reported that the US decision was made at the request of the office of Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
According to the Hebrew-language site, the decision highlights the importance of Biden’s government’s assistance in maintaining the stability of the new Zionist regime and not taking steps that would harm it.
