Macron criticizes US embassy move, says ‘people dying not a celebration’

Macron slams the US transferring its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying the move sparked deadly violence in Gaza and did not promote peace.

“If [moving the embassy] leads to people dying, it’s not a celebration,” he says at a joint press conference alongside Netanyahu.

Macron goes on to say that France wants to help alleviate the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip.
