This was a good decision by the Japanese to not move its embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds. Certainly hope the Japanese are prepared for any blow back in their decision not to move their embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds giving their reason that “the status of the holy city should be determined through dialog”. On Christmas day, it was announced that Honduras is expected to move their embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds. This is how it works getting the embassy’s from other countries including Honduras to move to Jerusalem:
“So now we see that in return for America’s support of voter fraud in Honduras that once again crushed democracy there, the corrupt president the people have been protesting against since 2015 when he was caught taking money from hospitals and medicine to put it in his own pocket for political purposes, returns the favor by supporting the Americans decision to move their embassy to Jerusalem. What Donald Trump has done in Honduras was a dirty deed done dirt cheap. Just like what Hilary Clinton did there back in 2009. That dirty deed had nothing to do with confronting drug trafficking. It was about supporting drug trafficking. Just so we are all clear.” https://gangstersout.blogspot.jp/2017/12/jerusalem-o-jerusalem.html

Japan’s Foreign Minister Taro Kono says Tokyo will not move its embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds, stressing that the status of the holy city should be determined through dialog.
During a visit to Amman on Tuesday, Kano sat down for talks with his Jordanian counterpart, Ayman Safadi, over a recent US decision on December 6 to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s “capital.”
The controversial decision was announced on December 6 by US President Donald Trump, who also said the White House was preparing to relocate the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the Israeli-occupied city.
During the talks, Safadi, whose country is the custodian of the Haram al-Sharif in East Jerusalem al-Quds, stressed that the status of the holy city should be decided “through direct negotiations and according to the relevant international resolutions.”
Kano also said his country, a longstanding US ally, would not follow in US footsteps on Jerusalem al-Quds, and agreed with Safadi that dialog is needed to determine the status of the city.
The dramatic shift in Washington’s Jerusalem al-Quds policy has drawn fierce criticism from the international community, including the United States’ Western allies, and triggered demonstrations against the US and Israel worldwide.
Over a dozen Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli forces and hundreds of others wounded during the ongoing rallies across the occupied Palestinian territories.
