washington - The planned relocation of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem will not take place within a year. That's what President Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December and initiated the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This intention met with great indignation in the Arab world and in the west.

According to Foreign Minister Rex Tillerson, moving the embassy will not take place sooner than in three years and that planning is even more ambitious. However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he expected the controversial move to be realized within the year. 'Within a year? That would be on a temporary basis ', Trump replied to the words of Netanyahu. 'However, that is not our aim. '
