US Vice President Postpones His Visit to Israel

JERUSALEM – The United States Vice President Mike Pence postponed an upcoming visit to Israel, the Israeli foreign ministry confirmed to EFE on Thursday.

According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon, the delay of Mike Pence’s visit, which was scheduled for Monday, was due to US internal affairs and a tax reform vote in the US Congress.

Meanwhile, local media said the postponement was linked to the Palestinian situation after the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Arab and Islamic leaders on Wednesday held a special summit in Istanbul, where Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced the termination of the 1993 Oslo Accords and any other agreements signed since then with Israel, and rejected the US role as a mediator in the conflict between Palestine and Israel.

The Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit attendees aimed to forge a joint response to the declaration on Jerusalem.

“We the Kings and Heads of States and Governments of Member States of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation... reject and condemn in the strongest words the unilateral decision of the President of the United States of America recognizing Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the so-called capital of Israel, the occupying power,” said the draft declaration prepared Wednesday in Istanbul by the OIC.

Earlier this week, Abbas canceled his meeting with Pence in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s recent announcement.

Pence’s plan to visit the Middle East aimed at reaffirming the US relations with the countries of the region.
