Canada doesn't support Trump on Jerusalem

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Chrystia Freeland, refrained on Wednesday from supporting U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, but also did not harshly criticize the move as other countries had done.

‘‘Canada is a steadfast ally and friend of Israel and friend to the Palestinian people. Canada’s longstanding position is that the status of Jerusalem can be resolved only as part of a general settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli dispute,” she said in a statement.
