Education Minister and Bayit Yehudi head Naftali Bennet urged Prime Minister Netanyahu to make it clear to US President Donald Trump that his constituents still expect the US embassy in Tel Aviv to be relocated to Jerusalem during his visit at the end of the month.
Taking to social media to deliver the message Sunday, Bennett wrote on Twitter: "Countries from across the world place their emabssies in Washington DC, thus this needs to be applied in Jerusalem, our capital for 3000 years."
"Moving the US embassy in Israel to (Jerusalem) strengthens Israel and strengthens the prospects for peace," Bennett added.
Bayit Yehudi faction in the Knesset represents the national-religious movement in Israel that rejects a Palestinian state and calls for the annexation of parts of the West Bank.
