The leaders of the OIC member states condemned Trump's decision. The Trump family will be represented by the president's daughter and son-in-law.

The embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is expected to occur on May 14.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has warned that the move would have a "disastrous impact on the peace process, on the two-state solution and on the stability and security of the entire region".

Workmen installed the black-and-white signs, in English, Hebrew and Arabic, along roads leading to a USA consulate building in south Jerusalem that will be remodeled as the embassy when it is formally relocated from Tel Aviv on May 14.

Earlier this week, Amnesty International UK also condemned the launch of the race right next to East Jerusalem al-Quds where Palestinians regularly face house demolitions, illegal settlement building and restrictions of movement.

The competition took place just kilometers away from the besieged Gaza Strip where Israeli forces killed 45 Palestinians and injured about 7,000 others during the "Great March of Return" protests, which began on March 30. "Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people - and the world is beginning to recognize this fact". The Palestinians seek the eastern sector as capital of their hoped-for State.

Trump had left the door open to personally attending the embassy opening.

On Sunday, May 13, Israel's Foreign Ministry will host a festive event celebrating the moves to Jerusalem of the American and Guatemalan embassies, which will also be attended by US officials, as well as Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales.

Trump made recognizing Jerusalem as the capital a campaign vow, breaking with previous presidents who believed the controversial move would kill any peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

A Paraguay government spokesman said Cartes was scheduling a trip to Israel to move the embassy on May 21 or May 22.
