Romanian President denies reports that country will move embassy to Jerusalem

Anadolu Agency: Palestine to fight US move on Jerusalem

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, is scheduled to attend, possibly with his wife, fellow White House adviser Ivanka Trump.

Some 40 senators will join the delegation, including Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham.

About 250 people are expected to travel from the USA for the embassy opening, including around 40 members of Congress and leaders from Jewish organizations and pro-Israel groups, Axios reported, citing Israeli officials.

Trump and Netanyahu have spoken several times since that first phone call but the relationship between the close allies has strained over diverging Middle East strategies.

Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila on Friday said his government had also approved an embassy relocation to Jerusalem. Honduras will be the third country to relocate to Jerusalem thereafter. However, under Romanian law, the country's president Klaus Iohannis would still have the final say, and Iohannis has spoken out in opposition to the move.

The president brought up the "golden showers thing" and said it really bothered him if his wife had any doubt about it. Neither Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, nor the White House press office responded to emails requesting comment.

"Moving the embassy to Jerusalem can and I believe will bring short, medium and long-term benefits for Romania and we must use this huge chance and opportunity", he added.

"The European Union - and we also belong to the European Union - follows a clear line of conduct on this issue: no one from the EU will move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem until the parties agree on the status of the city", Iohannis said Monday as quoted by the Digi 24 broadcaster.

"Initially, the interim embassy in Arnona will contain office space for [U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman] and a small staff".

Some 250 people are expected to attend the ceremony, Axios reported Sunday. "We expect the process of site selection, design, planning and permitting, and construction of a permanent embassy to take additional years to complete".
