Earlier on Wednesday, the US president announced his decision - despite widespread opposition across the Middle East - to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"We believe that any action that would undermine these efforts must absolutely be avoided", Mogherini said in a joint media statement with Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonTillerson on reports of ouster: "It's laughable" Meet the Iran hawk who could be Trump's next secretary of State Tillerson under pressure after White House plan leaks MORE.

Referring to the two-state solution, she said: "A negotiated two-state solution, which fulfils the aspirations of both sides, is the only realistic way of bringing the lasting peace and security that both Israelis and Palestinians deserve".

Ms Mogherini said the European Union and its member states would continue to respect the global consensus on the location of their diplomatic representations in Israel until the final status of Jerusalem was resolved. A crucial part of that worldwide consensus has also been the refusal to recognise Israel's claim to Jerusalem as its capital. "It might have serious repercussions on public opinion in large parts of the world", she said while speaking to Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, according to a press release.

While Israel regards Jerusalem as its capital, the global community insists that the status of the city should be determined in the peace talks with the Palestinians.

During his election campaign previous year, Trump repeatedly promised to relocate the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Under the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, the USA must move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, though the president can sign a waiver keeping it in Tel Aviv - a tradition that each president has followed. Several UN resolutions explicitly states that no diplomatic missions be established in Jerusalem.
