Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday (November 9) congratulated US President-elect Donald Trump, who stunned the world by defeating heavily favoured Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, ending eight years of Democratic rule and sending the United States on a new, uncertain path.

“President-elect Trump, my friend, congratulations on being elected President of the United States of America. You are a great friend of Israel, over the years you’ve expressed your support consistently, and I deeply appreciate it. I look forward to working with you to advance security, prosperity and peace. Israel is grateful for the broad support it enjoys among the American people, and I am confident that the two of us working closely together will bring the great alliance between our two countries to even greater heights. May God bless America, may God bless Israel, may God bless our enduring alliance,” said Netanyhau from his office in Jerusalem.

Trump had told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a meeting in New York in September that under his administration, the United States would “recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”

While Israel calls Jerusalem its capital, few other countries accept that, including the United States. Most nations maintain embassies in Tel Aviv.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in a 1967 war, as capital of the state they aim to establish alongside Israel in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
