Romania president concerned about govt support of embassy move to Jerusalem

Romania’s government has backed moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, drawing a warning from the president that the step could break international law. Romania would be one of the first countries to relocate its embassy following the United States after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December. “Yesterday, the government adopted a memorandum deciding to start the procedure to effectively move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Social Democrat leader and lower house speaker Liviu Dragnea said late on Thursday. Prime Minister Viorica Dancila confirmed on Friday that the memorandum has been approved. The final say on embassy relocation belongs to centrist President Klaus Iohannis, who said he had not been consulted, according to Reuters.
