    The Senate on Monday unanimously passed a resolution marking the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem during the 1967 Six Day War.

    The resolution, which passed by a 90-0 vote, calls on President Donald Trump to “abide by” a 1995 law which stipulates that the U.S. Embassy in Israel would move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    It says that “Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected.”

    It adds that “Jerusalem is a holy city and the home for people of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths” and advocates a two-state outcome based on direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinian Arabs.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not mention the embassy in a Monday floor speech calling for support of the resolution, noted The Washington Examiner.

    “In honor of this significant anniversary for our close ally, many Senators from both sides of the aisle are joining together in a resolution to mark the occasion today,” McConnell said.

    “While we know that Israel continues to face a number of threats, bipartisan passage of this resolution will serve as yet another indication of the United States’ commitment to standing by our Israeli friends,” he added.

    The 1995 law called for the President to move the embassy to Jerusalem by May 31, 1999, or else issue a waiver every six months delaying the move.

    Trump, who promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem during his presidential campaign, last week signed the presidential waiver delaying the move by another six months. Before Trump, former President Barack Obama had signed the waiver in December.

    Despite the signing, however, White House press secretary clarified to reporters on Friday that Trump still intends to move the embassy to Jerusalem and that the move is a question of “when” and not “if”.

    On Sunday, the United States Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, echoed those comments, telling CNN that Trump still intends to move the embassy to Jerusalem, but he believes that such a move could be a part of the peace initiative he is promoting.
