United States Secratary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States still supports a two-state solution and the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital is "just a recognition of reality."

All of Israel's government offices are largely in Jerusalem already, so the US is just recognizing the reality of that," Tillerson said after a Friends of Georgia Photo Opportunity.

He also reaffirmed that the US does not consider the decision to "finalize the status of Jerusalem," which is up to Israel and the Palestinians to discuss.

"We're very committed to the peace process still," Tillerson said.
