Palestinian National Authority (PNA) on Sunday recalled its ambassador to the U.S. for consultation over the crisis with Washington after its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. 
 
Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riad Malki said in a statement that he decided to recall the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization mission in the U.S., Ambassador Hossam Zomlot. 
 
On Dec. 6, U.S. President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
 
The move met strong Palestinian and Arab rejection.
 
Palestinians want East Jerusalem, which was occupied by Israel in 1967, as the capital of their future state, while Israel refuses to divide the city and wants "Greater Jerusalem" as its capital.
