of this article stated that diplomats from
Nigeria, Thailand and Vietnam attended the
inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
This was incorrect, as is now reflected
May 15, 2018 "Information Clearing House" - Thirty-two countries attend US ceremony to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem, says Israel's foreign ministry.
The move on Monday followed a December 2017 decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocate the US mission there from Tel Aviv.
Trump's controversial declaration was widely condemned by the international community, with the United Nations General Assembly rejecting by a huge majority the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Most countries say the status of Jerusalem - a sacred city to Jews, Muslims and Christians - should be determined in a final peace settlement and that moving their embassies now would pre-judge any such deal.
Israel's foreign ministry said all 86 countries with diplomatic missions in Israel were invited to the embassy opening, and 33 confirmed attendance. However, the Nigerian and Thai representatives did not attend.
