Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden said Wednesday that he will keep the US embassy in Israel in Occupied Jerusalem - even though he disagrees with Donald Trump's controversial 2017 decision to move it out of Tel Aviv.
The former vice-president said the embassy should never have been moved without that decision being part of a wider Middle East peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
"But now that it's done, I would not move the embassy back to Tel Aviv," Biden told a virtual fundraising event.
