US President Barack Obama has issued a decision to suspend moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for another six months.

Since 1995, US presidents have suspended moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem after the US Congress voted in favor of moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

Countries refrain from moving their embassies to Jerusalem until Palestinians and Israelis reach a settlement regarding the final status quo of the holy city.

The white house noted that the decision aims to “protect the US national security interests.” The decree, signed by Obama and directed to the US Secretary of State John Kerry, states that the decision will be effective for six more months.
