QS: Please explicitly name the current foreign policy the US maintains in Israel
A: Well, recently the embassy was moved due to a change in administration policy and application of
1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, wherein the Embassy was due to be moved since 1996. Jerusalem is the
centre of Israeli government services of legislation, execution, judiciary, with the exception of the
military. The move to Jerusalem also allows the United States to maintain a new Palestinian Affairs
Unit in order to maintain contact with the region since we don’t officially recognize it as a state. The
movement is considered to be for the benefit of both the Israeli and Palestinian parties, and regardless
of the move, the United States considers the issue of governance over Jerusalem to be of utmost
QR: Please explain the reason behind the movement of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to
A: Contrary to popular belief, the movement of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem does not
indicate a change in the position of the United States on the Israeli-Palestinian territorial dispute. It
does not consider Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. By law, the United States recognizes that
Jerusalem is a city of socio-cultural and religious importance to several different peoples, and
therefore is an area of international importance

QS: Is it true that under both the UN Charter, the United States has sovereignty, and therefore
authority, to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?
A: Yes, it is true. With Jerusalem as a “no man’s land” as proven by a number of evidence, the United
States have every right to move its embassy to Jerusalem. The United States would also like to highlight
that as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations, the actions of the United States stand
by the purposes of the UN, to develop friendly relations among the United States based on the respect
for the principle of equal rights and self-determination.
A: Out of respect for Israel, and the fact that we hold

General Questions (Cross-Examination)

I will choose to refuse the question. Thank you.

The US national law supersedes UN Resolutions, therefore it has the right and sovereignty to move its
embassy to Jerusalem.

American only advocates for peace and such Trump Peace Plans allow us to do so.
