Britain 'disagrees' with Trump move

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday said the UK disagreed with U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and his announcement that the American embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"We disagree with the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement. We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region. The British Embassy to Israel is based in Tel Aviv and we have no plans to move it,” she said in a statement.
