Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison rejected reports he would soon recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Morrison was asked about his intentions for Jerusalem during a news conference in Adelaide Wednesday. He answered that it was too early to discuss such matters and that "when I’m in a position to make that announcement, I will.”

Australian media had reported that the Cabinet had voted to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, which would make Australia the latest country to follow the lead of US President Donald Trump, who announced the recognition of Jerusalem a year ago.
