‘Dossier Jerusalem’: This Is The Only African Country To Support The United States

Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital does not meet the UN agreement. This Thursday, December 22, a draft resolution against this decision was adopted. While all African countries are hostile to the issue, only one is on the side of the United States.

Togo is the only African country to support the United States in its plan to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Other countries like Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau, also support the USA. 35 countries, mostly African, abstained from voting while 128 countries voted against.


Africa is against except Togo

In the aftermath of the US president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, protests erupted in several African capitals. However, Togo is in the opposite position, while the African Union has already condemned this decision.

For the president of the Commission of the African Union, Moussa Faki ”  This choice will only increase tensions in the region and beyond and further complicate the search for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict  “. He therefore reiterated the AU’s commitment to the Palestinian people and their support for their legitimate quest for an independent and sovereign State with East Jerusalem as its capital.


Israel-Togo: stable relations

Togo’s position should not come as a surprise when we know that its relations with Israel are more than stable and date back to the era of President Gnassingbé Eyadéma. The country had even agreed to host an Israel-Africa summit from October 24 to 26, which had angered several African Islamic countries. This summit was finally reported.
