Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat admitted he was disappointed after US President Donald Trump on Thursday decided to sign a waiver to delay relocating the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but said he was sure Trump will keep his promise later on.

"We will continue to do what it takes to encourage him to move the embassy to the capital of Israel as soon as possible," Barkat said. "We stand ready to do whatever is necessary to help the move take place."
