The possible recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States will not contribute to efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli crisis, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Russian reporters in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Hamas on Tuesday called for a "day of rage" in response to the US's plan for moving its embassy from Tel-Aviv to Quds. "It is an unmasked support to occupation, oppression and injustice", Haniyya added, "Jerusalem is ours, there is no West or East; it is the united Arab and Islamic capital of the state of Palestine, a state from the river to the sea".

According to him, Trump's announcement "will not change the situation of the occupied city of Al Quds, the eternal capital of the State of Palestine".

The king "reiterated that such a risky step of relocation or recognition of Al-Quds as the capital of Israel would constitute a flagrant provocation of Muslims all over the world, as per its lofty status to them and as it is the cradle of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the first direction they were facing in their daily prayers", the official Saudi Press Agency added. According to the Oslo Accords it is classified as Area B which is administered by both Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
