US Embassy to stay in Tel-Aviv

The US President Donald trump has signed the waiver keeping the United States embassy in Tel Aviv avoiding a controversial move to Jerusalem, at least for the moment, The Hills newspaper reported.

The White House said that Trump signed the order to allow negotiations between Israel   and the Palestinians to resume.

A White House statement said that Trump had not departed from his original plan to move the US embassy  from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He has since, however, stalled on his pledge.

The president began backing away from moving the embassy when King Abdullah II of Jordan flew to Washington, DC,  to explain to the White House why the move might not be such a good idea, the Times reported.
