US President Donald Trump this week sent a letter of thanks to Kiryat Yam mayor David Even Tzur for naming a new park in the northern city after him.

The park, which city officials decided to name after Trump following his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, will be located in the center of the city.

In his letter, Trump noted that it was a "distinct pleasure" to have visited Israel on his first international visit as president, and noted that Israel is "an oasis of hope, democracy and prosperity in the Middle East.''

The president also sent his "very best wishes" to the mayor and the residents of Kiryat Yam.
