White House doesn't see other countries following US move Dec 08, 2017 0 76 12345 REUTERSJERUSALEMIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday many countries would follow the United States in recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital and contacts were underway.Wednesday's announcement by US President Donald Trump reversed decades of peace-making policy on Jerusalem, which both Israelis and Palestinians claim, and drew censure from many countries, among them key allies of Washington."I would like to announce that we are already in contact with other countries which will issue a similar recognition," Netanyahu said in a speech at Israel's Foreign Ministry.He did not name any of these countries."I have no doubt that the moment the American Embassy moves to Jerusalem, and even before then, there will be a movement of many embassies to Jerusalem. The time has come," Netanyahu said.Meanwhile, the White House said on Thursday it was not aware of any other country that planned to follow President Donald Trump's lead and recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital."I'm not aware of any countries that we anticipate that happening at any point soon," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters."I'm not saying that they aren't, but I'm not aware of them."
