Egypt condemned on Wednesday the US decision to transfer the headquarter of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said that Cairo will not recognize repercussions of the US move, saying that this unilateral decision violates UN resolutions and will not change the legal status of Jerusalem as an occupied city.
Egypt is concerned about consequences of this decision, which would have a negative impact on the Mideast peace process and regional stability, the statement read.
Trump's decision would undermine efforts aimed at achieving just and comprehensive peace in the Middle East and establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
