Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat on Wednesday dismissed the political arguments surrounding the US Democratic party's exclusion of a clause citing Jerusalem as Israel's capital from its 2012 platform.

"The fact that Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel is not a subject for debate, and its status is not affected by foreign political platforms or elections,” he said.
