with the stroke of a pen donald trump turned the middle east on its head. i have determined that it is time to officially recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel the u.s. president throwing decades of diplomatic caution to the wind he dismissed warnings that his decision could light the fuse of one of the world's most explosive powder kegs this decision is not intended in any way to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement we want an agreement that is a great deal for the israelis and a great deal for the palestinians in jerusalem many israelis celebrated trance announced minutes long overdue the flacks of the two allies waving side by side on
the old city wall. prime minister benjamin netanyahu praising the move as the beginning of a new era this is a historic day the president's decision is an important step towards peace for there is no peace that doesn't include jerusalem as the capital of the state of israel. but far from all israelis share that optimism but it shows a lack of understanding of the sensitivities in this region and i think it's a dangerous move right now that sentiment echoed by the palestinians top peace negotiator the seasoned diplomat visibly shaken warning that trump's move could play into the hands of islamists i think president tonight this qualified the united states of america any or all you know if it's a process i think tonight he is thinking the forces of three months in this region as no one has done before. and there is reason to fear the washington's u.
turn could provide fertile ground for radicalisation many palestinians see them with a in a sense of betrayal. i tell donald trump you're crazy crazy. you've opened hell's gate behind. the white house is set to unveil a peace plan sometime next year but after trump's latest announcement the question is if those needed to secure peace will listen. let's go right to our correspondent tanya kramer she's standing by for us in jerusalem following the very latest hi tanya just in the last hour hamas has called for a new intifada an uprising against israel a tell us more. yeah the reactions are coming in here as he said to mustard it's not a hand he has given of a theory speech in gaza and he calls for launching a new intifada and the question will be what will be the response of the
palestinian street and also you have to understand that there is a very consolation process going on between hamas in gaza and who are basically donates to palestinians are to the west bank so what will say they say to that so we have to wait and see what the responses will be there at the moment what you can say there is a general strike called for in the occupied west bank but also in east jerusalem also in gaza this call for demonstration there have been some but not really organized ones and the leaders are all supposed to meet again to clarify the next steps also the palestinian president mahmoud abbas is expected to go to jordan to meet with king abdullah he has jordan has a high stake in that as well because jordan is the custodian of the holy sites in east jerusalem and also there were reactions from saudi arabia coming through there already had one to before. mr trump made the decision against the steps and he said
they expressed deep regret and that they call it an unjustified and irresponsible decision tanya what about israeli leaders are they bracing then for violence well certainly is rent is high and there is but i have to say everybody on all sides they're praising him for the fall out of what will happen next and nobody really knows i think all eyes will be certainly on friday prayers especially in the complaint is to do so then there is a sense of uncertainty here right now what will happen next. you know the trump administration in the us tanya has said it is simply acknowledging what is already reality on the ground that you are asylum is the capital of israel other presidents have already proposed moving the embassy why are palestinians hearing a different message but from what i understand from harvesting this is that they are saying well he didn't acknowledge our reality of living here in our part of the
city it is to resume palestinians want to see the. pandas used to serve as to future capital of the future an independent state and what mr trump did is he just walked away from international security council resolutions from a common international understanding that this is ok prime territory i mean he didn't distinguish between east and some address to islam so this is highly problematic for the palestinians and they don't quite understand it because he wants to come up with a new peace plan but how can this happen after this decision. on your cramer with the very latest from jerusalem thank you tanya now to some other stories making news around the world australia as parliament has passed a bill to legalize same sex marriage paving the way for gay and lesbian couples to tie the knot as early as next month all but four lawmakers voted in favor of the change which defines marriage as being

decades the two countries have disagreements over three major issues the island of cyprus control of parts of the aegean sea around the two countries and recently the migration crisis. cyprus was granted independence from the british in one nine hundred sixty years of violence between the island's greek and turkish communities followed. when greek nationalists tried to unite cyprus with mainland greece in one thousand nine hundred seventy four turkey invaded and captured land in the north. today the two halves of the island a still separated turkish northern cyprus is recognized only by turkey the republic of cyprus and the island south is an e.u. member state protected un buffer zone keeps them apart greece and

well for starters on the face of it the government wants to build more bridges so there will be talks about intensifying bilateral. trade and communication and travel even between. both sides but as you've said there are a lot of stormy issues that remain and in fact even before the price of the turkish president set foot here in athens he has stunned greeks who some pretty controversial remarks demanding that. an agreement that outlines existing borders between greece and turkey would be revised and also outing the greek prime minister for allegedly not handing over eight turkish servicemen who fled to agree in the wake of last year's coup in. the ease. not that these remarks definitely do not bode well and they
