Vice President Mike Pence said Monday that the United States would no longer certify the Iran nuclear deal, and said that President Trump has instructed the State Department to begin preparations for moving the American embassy in Israel, and said the embassy would open before the end of 2019.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, in an address to Israel's Knesset on January 22, said the United States would "never allow" Iran to possess nuclear weapons.
The Vice-President's speech was briefly interrupted at the beginning when a handful of Arab members of the Israeli parliament jumped to their feet holding signs saying Jerusalem was the capital of Palestine.
The EU has restated its opposition to United States plans on Jerusalem during a visit to Brussels by Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.
Earlier in the day, Pence confirmed the U.S. Embassy in Israel will move to Jerusalem within the year.
Mr. Netanyahu told Mr. Pence that it was the first time a visiting dignitary could utter those three words along with him, and thanked him for President Donald Trump's "historic" recognition of Jerusalem.
"West Jerusalem will be recognized as Israel's capital by the whole world as soon as the government of Israel recognizes East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state", the statement also read.

With that in mind, Trump has chose to recognize reality, and in doing so force the Palestinians to confront it as well.
"Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital", he continued.
"The door's open. President Trump is absolutely committed to doing everything the United States can to achieve a peace agreement that brings an end to decades of conflict".
Palestinian members of the Israeli parliament have been forcibly removed from the chamber after staging a protest at the start of US Vice President Mike Pence's speech. He said that East Jerusalem had to be then, the capital of a Palestinian state.
In Brussels, the EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini assured Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at a meeting that the European Union supported his ambition to have East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. "And I know that we are going to talk about that today, and that you have come points that you're going to raise", he said. And they would still support a two-state solution if that's what the Israelis and the Palestinians would support.
Palestinians "are keen on continuing on the way of negotiations because we believe it is the only way forward to reach a negotiated solution and peace between us and Israel", he said. "And I hope I impressed upon King Abdullah our earnest desire to restart the peace process", Pence said.
Reaffirming Washington's unflinching support for the Tel Aviv regime, the United States vice president also called for the resumption of so-called peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis.
