Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon reportedly said:
“At the moment 30 of 86 ambassadors have responded positively [to the invitation]. A large number of ambassadors have yet to respond. We hope all the ambassadors will arrive.”
Fewer than half of the foreign leaders invited to the US embassy relocation ceremony in Jerusalem have actually accepted…
On May 9, Hadashot TV reported that several EU states, including the UK, Germany, and France, are going to boycott the event.
