Lieberman: Trump has 'historic opportunity to rectify injustice' with Jerusalem recognition

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday that US President Donald Trump has a "historic opportunity" as he weighs whether to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.


"I think there is a historic opportunity to rectify the injustice," Lieberman told members of his Yisrael Beytenu party.


"I very much hope that President Trump's decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem is the final decision, and I hope to see an American embassy here in Jerusalem next week or next month," Lieberman said.


Lieberman said that Israel was prepared to deal with any fresh unrest over the issue. "If someone tries to provoke difficulties or riots around the transfer of the embassy, we will cope with it," he said.
