Firas Maksad speaks to BBC Newshour about how President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will impact US relations with Saudi Arabia and the Arab World. Despite being a strong US ally, Saudi Arabia cannot go along with Washington’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. In the short-term, the decision will consolidate the view, particularly among Palestinians, that the two-state solution is unworkable and empower those who do not believe in the peace process. It will also complicate Saudi efforts to work as a bridge between the Arab World and the Trump Administration.
