The heads of the bipartisan Congressional Israel Allies Caucus urged the American administration on Tuesday to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The Congressmen spoke at an event marking this week's 46th anniversary of Jerusalem's liberation in which Knesset members and European parliament members participated by video conference.  

“We strongly believe that Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of Israel with no waivers and no caveats,” said Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado), who head the Israel Allies Caucus in Congress.

Congressman Brad Sherman of California said movin the embassy was long overdue. He said it was a “no brainer” because the location of the planned US Embassy in Jerusalem is in a part of the city which has been under Israeli sovereignty since 1948.
