(TAP) - Premier Youssef Chahed Thursday said US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Al-Quds as the capital of Israel is "a hard blow to the rights and cause of the Palestinian people."

"Tunisia and the Tunisian people will always support the Palestinian people," he Thursday said on the fringes of a conference on speeding up the implementation of renewable energy projects.

Trump Wednesday said he recognises Al-Quds as Israel's capital and announced plans to relocate the US Embassy there.

The United Nations Security Council will meet Friday over Trump's move
