The Czech Republic on Wednesday recognized western Jerusalem as the capital of Israel following President Donald Trump’s historic policy changes on that city.

According to a statement published on the Czech Foreign Ministry website, the country “currently, before the peace between Israel and Palestine is signed, recognizes Jerusalem to be in fact the capital of Israel in the borders of the demarcation line from 1967.” While Israel has controlled western Jerusalem since its 1948-49 War of Independence, the Jewish state took control of eastern Jerusalem after the 1967 Six-Day War.
