  • WATCH LIVE: US VP Mike Pence at Event Marking 70 Years Since UN Vote That Established Israel

In 1995, Congress passed a law making it USA policy to move the embassy to Jerusalem, symbolically endorsing Israel's claim on the city as its capital.

"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence said Tuesday at an event in NY organized by the Israeli mission to the United Nations in partnership with the World Jewish Congress marking the 70th anniversary of the U.N. General Assembly vote to recognize Israel on November 29, 1947.

In just a few more weeks, the president will decide whether to approve the move or stave off the decision for another six months.

"I'm pleased to report today that America's support for Israel's security is at a record level today", he said.

"Israel didn't need a [U.N.] resolution to call for its existence because its right to exist is self-evident and timeless", he said.

"But with the leadership of our president and the efforts of our ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, the days of Israel-bashing at the United Nations are over". "While Israel was built by human hands, it's impossible not to see the hand of heaven here too".

Under the terms of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, the waiver must be signed every six months.

During Tuesday's address, Pence emphasized the U.S.'s strong relations with Israel.

The administration was "committed" to bringing peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said.

US President Donald Trump may formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital early next week and direct his staff to prepare for moving the embassy to Jerusalem, Channel 2 News reported Wednesday night.

He reiterated that the US alliance with Israel is stronger than ever, and that the Trump administration will never allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon. "This is our solemn promise to you, to Israel and to the world".

The Palestinians, as well as some Arab leaders and top United States officials, have warned that such a move would trigger an uproar and violent unrest in the territories and in Arab capitals that could ruin current U.S. efforts to push the diplomatic process forward.

"As President Trump said, 'If the world knows nothing else, let them know this-that America stands with Israel, '" Pence said.

Former Fatah strongman Mohammed Dahlan says that Palestinian political reconciliation must be prioritised over negotiations with Israel, saying the two-state solution is now "impossible". But the vote in the UN, 70 years ago, gave Israel something very special: "a place among the nations".
