WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement after President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel:

“The President’s announcement today is consistent with current U.S. law and reaffirms what we already know: Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. The U.S. must recommit to our long-standing goal of a negotiated solution that leads to two states for two people. Only direct negotiations between the parties will allow Israelis and Palestinians to live side by side in peace, security and mutual recognition.”
