Sullivan says embassy opening a ‘step toward advancing peace’

US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan takes the stage.

Sullivan thanks Friedman for his efforts “to ensure the strongest possible bond between Israel and the United States.”

He says he’s honored to speak on this “momentous occasion” which is “so steeped in history.”

“Jerusalem is indisputably the capital of Israel,” he says. The embassy move is “a step toward advancing peace in this city, this region, and throughout the world.”

The embassy move is a “magnificent tribute to peace,” says Sullivan, quoting Trump.
