Palestinian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned the decision of the Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip to move his embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem، moments before the fall of his government.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry considered it a flagrant violation of international law and international legitimacy and UN resolutions.
Moldova’s government announced on Tuesday that it will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv، JTA reports.
The announcement followed fallout from a constitutional crisis and power struggle that ended last week with a constitutional court’s suspension of the country’s elected president، Igor Dodon.
The statement tied the decision، which would make Moldova the only European country with its embassy in Jerusalem، to internal unrest and the sale of the land for the construction of a new American embassy in Chisinau، the Moldovan capital.
