Romanian leaders fight over embassy move to Jerusalem

People gather in Tel Aviv

However, according to the Constitution, the final decision belongs to the president of Romania.

Iohannis had "not been consulted or informed over this process", his office said in an April 20 statement.

Liviu Dragnea, chairman of the Social Democratic Party, claimed in a tv interview Thursday the authorities had chose to proceed to the embassy.

Iohannis said the decision was "not based on firm, wide-ranging evaluations".

"Moving the embassy to Jerusalem can and I believe will bring short, medium and long-term benefits for Romania and we must use this huge chance and opportunity". Dragnea can not be Prime Minister of Romania because he was sentenced for buying votes.

Romania's government has backed moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, drawing a warning from the president - who has the final say - that the move could break worldwide law.

Foreign Minister Teodor Melescanu was not in the country to approve the draft, while state secretary George Ciamba, who represented the ministry at the cabinet meeting on Wednesday, told journalists that "he doesn't want to talk about it".

Romania's decision comes just a week after Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely flew to Bucharest to meet with Romanian government officials, one of many foreign trips planned as part of a campaign to persuade countries to make Jerusalem their centre of operations, thereby offering a de-facto recognition of the city as the Israeli capital.

President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala announced last month that his nation will also relocate its embassy to Jerusalem two days after the move by the United States, on May 16.

Since the USA officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital back in December, Guatemala and Honduras have made similar announcement.
