AL-QUDS (Dispatches) – The German and French ambassadors, along with other European Union (EU) ambassadors, boycotted a ceremony at the U.S. Embassy in Al-Quds, Israeli Ynet News revealed on Tuesday.
The ceremony was held on 4 July at the U.S. Embassy in Al-Quds to mark American Independence Day.
The U.S. Embassy invited ambassadors of the occupied territories that have embassies and representatives, including the EU ambassadors, according to Ynet News.
Ynet News said that the ambassadors who did not attend the ceremony chose not to because of the location of the U.S. Embassy, which is in Al-Quds.
The specific countries, Ynet News reported, do not recognize Al-Quds as the so-called ‘capital’ city of the occupying regime.
In addition to the German and French officials, the Israeli news website revealed that officials from Romania, UK, Kosovo, Australia, Norway, and Canada also did not attend.
It was an embarrassing diplomatic situation for the U.S. because the U.S. administration has turned a new page in the relationship with the EU after four years of tension during Trump’s administration.
