Indonesian president to attend Islamic leaders' summit on Jerusalem: minister

Indonesia President Joko Widodo

According to Donovan, the United States believes that the move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is "appropriate at this time", based on the fact that "major institutions of the Israeli government are located in Jerusalem".

With parliamentary elections scheduled for next year, Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak was more forceful.

Jerusalem remains at the core of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Jerusalem has always been a place of pilgrimage for Christians, Jews and Muslims and has been coveted and fought over by empires from East and West throughout its long history.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said democracy means respecting global law.

She showed the Palestinian scarf she wore as a form of Indonesian support and commitment to Palestinian people. "Recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not a recognition of the reality on the ground; it is an expression of support for Israeli policy, much of which is in contravention of worldwide law".

A statement posted on the Indian Foreign Ministry website said: "India's position on Palestine is independent and consistent".

Ambassador Donovan arrived at the Indonesia Conference and Exhibition Building (ICE) Serpong, Banten on Thursday at 7 pm on the sidelines of the 10th Bali Democracy Forum (BDF) to meet the Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs' call.

Indonesia asserts that such action has violated the UN Security Council resolutions and would jeopardise the Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

Trump defended his decision by saying the U.S. can not solve problems by making the same failed assumptions and repeating the same failed strategies of the past 70 years.

Washington recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday, and planned to move the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump announced his decision despite widespread global opposition to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
