US 'discussing' moving Israel embassy to Jerusalem

Days after Trump's inauguration, White House discusses controversial plan to relocate embassy from Tel Aviv.

    The White House said on Sunday that it is in the early stages of talks to fulfil President Donald Trump's pledge to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move opposed by the Palestinian leadership.

    "We are at the very beginning stages of even discussing this subject," said White House spokesman Sean Spicer.
