US to delay reopening of consulate in Jerusalem

The Biden administration has decided to hold off on reopening the US consulate in Jerusalem until after Israel’s new government passes a budget, likely in early November, Israeli, US and Palestinian Arab sources told Barak Ravid of Axios on Wednesday.

According to the report, the Prime Minister’s Office and Foreign Ministry had requested the delay and Biden’s decision to agree to the request shows how invested the Biden administration is in helping to stabilize the new Israeli government.
