Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu late Sunday promised never to abandon his commitment to Jerusalem.

Speaking at Merkaz Harav yeshiva on Jerusalem Day, Netanyahu said: "There are those who say that to guarantee our future we must divide Jerusalem. I say, to guarantee our future, I will make sure that Jerusalem remains our undivided capital."

Netanyahu added, "When I hear world leaders tell me not to build in Jerusalem I think of King David, who built this city before their nations existed."
