WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement in celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary and the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem:

“Congratulations to the people of Israel on the celebration of 70 years of statehood and the unveiling of the U.S. Embassy in their true capital city of Jerusalem,” Congressman Fleischmann said. “In celebrating the relocation of the U.S. Embassy, we also celebrate the friendship and partnership between the United States and Israel. Our longstanding alliance with the Jewish people is characterized by respect for peace and sovereignty, and it is my hope that in the years to come other nations will cultivate such diplomatic relations. I commend President Trump for acting quickly on his promise, just months prior, of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s rightful capital, and keeping that promise today.”
