Tunisian labor union says Jerusalem decision a 'declaration of war,' calls for protests

TUNIS - Tunisia's powerful labor union UGTT said US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and decision to move the US embassy to the city was a declaration of war, a statement said on Wednesday.

 

"We call...for mass protests," the labour union said in a statement.

 

Tunisia's foreign ministry said in a separate statement Trump's move "seriously threatens to undermine the foundations of the (Israeli-Palestinian) peace process."
