No concrete decision has yet been made on moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But despite the wait, Israel Hayom reports that the nations' leaders continue to strengthen the personal trust between one another:

In response to a question from Israel Hayom regarding the relationship between the two countries, the White House sent an exclusive response, stressing the new administration's intention to "rehabilitate the special relationship" between Washington and Jerusalem, based on "shared interests and common values," to make it as strong as it was in the past. As part of the effort to achieve peace, prosperity and security, the White House noted, Trump plans to develop "a close personal relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu..."

A few days earlier, a senior Trump administration official told Israel Hayom, "The Trump administration sees itself as committed to moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but it will be done in a responsible and organized way."

The official stressed: "For the American president, moving the embassy is one of the issues at the top of the list of priorities, even if it is not done tomorrow..."
