Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Office denied on Wednesday reports that it had received notice that US President Donald Trump has decided not to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"Israel's position is that all embassies, particularly the US embassy, should be in Israel's capital - Jerusalem," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, Israeli outlet NRG cited unnamed sources as saying the White House had relayed the decision to the government in Jerusalem about scrapping potential plans for the controversial move.
