"We are still judging the impact this decision will have on USA facilities and personnel overseas", the document said.

"This is more them, than anyone else's faults, ' Suleiman continued".

Arabs and Muslims across the Middle East on Wednesday condemned the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital as an incendiary move in a volatile region and Palestinians said Washington was abandoning its leading role as a peace mediator.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang had said on Wednesday that Trump's move would escalate tensions in the strife-torn region.

Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss and his followers from Jews United Against Zionism were among those who participated in the demonstration.

As Trump entered the event, his first words were - "I know there are a lot of happy people here, Jerusalem", to a roaring applause from the crowd, a relatively small one compared to past White House Hannukah events.

"This decision on Jerusalem will make everything worse", Rabbi Weiss told Anadolu Agency.

"On behalf of all Americans I also want to say how grateful I am to Jewish congregations throughout our country", Trump said.

"France and Europe are attached to a two-state solution - Israel and Palestine - leaving side by side in peace and security within recognised global borders with Jerusalem the capital of both states", he said.

Congressional Democrats, as well as Jewish leaders who have been critical of Trump, were excluded from the guest list, The New York Times reported.

Earlier on Friday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during a news conference in Paris that any final decision on the status of Jerusalem would depend on negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

"We are satisfied that there are 14 countries in the Security Council that are defending worldwide law, defending Security Council resolutions as it relates to Jerusalem and they are rejecting the unilateral, illegal decisions by President Trump two days ago".

But this was a rare rebuke for an action the United States took that in the eyes of the rest of the council and most of the world clearly violates UN resolutions and decisions that Jerusalem is an issue to be resolved by Israel and the Palestinians in peace negotiations on a two-state solution. "We believe we might be closer to that goal than ever before". "This will further escalate those problems that Palestinians are facing".

"It is a constant position of European Union members that, within this framework, Jerusalem should ultimately be the capital of both Israeli and Palestinian states".
