KABUL, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has expressed concern over U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, said a statement released by his office on Thursday.
"The decision would hurt the feelings of Muslims and jeopardizes the Middle East peace process," Abdullah said in the statement.
The statement also noted that "Any unilateral decision without Palestinians' participation won't led to lasting solution".
Abdullah said in the statement that the Afghan government is concerned regarding the decision, emphasizing that international decisions are available in this regard at the level of the United Nations Security Council and the UN General Assembly.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and reportedly said that the United States would shift its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
