The Palestinians have recalled their envoy to the United States after Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The Palestinians said on Sunday they were recalling their envoy to the United States for consultations in a move that follows US President Donald Trump’s designation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Palestinian foreign minister Riad al-Malki decided to recall Palestine Liberation Organisation’s envoy to Washington Husam Zomlot to consult, official Palestinian news agency WAFA said, without providing further details.

Mr Trump’s December 6 announcement regarding the disputed city deeply angered the Palestinians and led to unrest.
