QUESTION: And my other question pertaining to Ambassador David Friedman, he gave us an interview to the Jerusalem Post last week, last Friday.
MS NAUERT: Okay.
QUESTION: And he termed the Palestinian territories as allegedly occupied. Has there been any departure from the standard U.S. position that these territories are occupied?
MS NAUERT: Our position on that hasn’t changed. The comment does not represent a shift in U.S. policy.
QUESTION: Okay. But he is the ambassador of the United States of America.
MS NAUERT: His comment does not represent a shift in U.S. policy. Okay?
