特朗普就美国驻以使馆正式迁往耶路撒冷发表视频讲话
President Donald J. Trump's Message Upon the Dedication of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

[2018年5月15日] 来源:Whitehouse 作者:Donald J. Trump   字号 [] [] []  

美国总统特朗普打破了美国长期的政策,将大使馆从很多国家仍设立大使馆的特拉维夫迁出。特朗普通过录制视频向开馆仪式致辞:“以色列是一个主权国家,有权像其他任何一个主权国家一样,自己选择建都地点。但是多年来,我们却没有承认以色列首都是耶路撒冷这个现实。”

Exactly 70 years ago the United States, under President Harry Truman, became the first nation to recognize the state of Israel. Today we officially open the United States embassy in Jerusalem. Congratulations. It's been a long time coming.

Almost immediately after declaring statehood in 1948 Israel designated the city of Jerusalem as its capital; the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times. So important.

Today, Jerusalem is the seat of Israel's government, it is the home of the Israeli legislature and the Israeli supreme court and Israel's prime minister and president.

Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Yet for many years we failed to acknowledge the obvious, the plain reality that Israel's capital is Jerusalem.

On December 6th, 2017, at my direction, the United States finally and officially recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel. Today, we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem. And we're opening it many, many years ahead of schedule.TRUMP: As I said in December, our greatest hope is for peace. The United States remains fully committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement and we continue to support the status quo at Jerusalem's holy sites, including at the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif.

This city and its entire nation is a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people.

The United States will always be a great friend of Israel and a partner in the cause of freedom and peace.

We wish Ambassador Friedman good luck as he takes up his office in this beautiful Jerusalem embassy.

And we extend a hand in friendship to Israel, the Palestinians and to all of their neighbors.

May there be peace, may God bless this embassy, may God bless all who serve there, and may God bless the United States of America.

Thank you.
