World Court - Palestine files complaint over U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The International Court of Justice on Friday said it has received a complaint from the “State of Palestine” against the United States, arguing that the U.S. government’s placement of its Israeli embassy in Jerusalem violates an international treaty and it should be removed.
The ICJ, known as the World Court, said in a statement Palestine argues the 1961 Vienna Convention of Diplomatic Relations requires a country to  locate its embassy on the territory of a host state. While Israel controls Jerusalem militarily, its ownership is disputed.
