US President Donald Trump said on Friday that it is "too early" to talk about moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

"I don't want to talk about it yet," Trump said in an interview with Fox News. "It's too early."Though he was once committed to quickly moving America's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the Trump administration has recently been approaching the subject with more caution, promising only to review the matter extensively and in consultation with "stakeholders" in the conflict.

When asked during the interview about the importance of repairing the US-Israel relationship, Trump responded that  "It's repaired. It was repaired the minute I spoke to Netanyahu."
