The State Department has issued a warning for USA citizens traveling anywhere in the world after the Trump administration announced its decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing it as the capital of Israel.
"As terrorist attacks, political upheaval, and violence often take place without any warning, USA citizens are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness when traveling", it reads.
In a "security message" posted on the consulate's website, the USA government said it published the Israel travel warning because of "widespread calls for demonstrations" beginning Wednesday in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
The ministry also summoned U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman to register its displeasure with the move, according to ministry spokesman Ahmed Mahjoob. That advisory, which cautions that "the possibility of random violence continues to exist and can happen without warning", is still in effect.
"Americans in Jordan are encouraged to maintain a low profile and to remain alert to developments", the message said.
According to Trump, the U.S. State Department has already been instructed to begin preparations for the embassy's relocation from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.Читайте также: GE Layoffs: General Electric Company to Cut 12000 Jobs
"This is our Qibla-I-Awwal (the first direction of prayer) and no Muslim can ever accept it (Jerusalem) as the capital of the Zionist state of Israel".
Al-Abadi called on the USA government to reverse that decision, because it can lead to an escalation of extremism and atmosphere conducive to terrorism around the world. "No civilized, democratic and peace-loving people will tolerate it".
A number of world powers, including Germany, Turkey, and Russian Federation, expressed grave concern over the Trump administration's decision.
"We caution against the unsafe repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world", the government's statement said.
