Trump's Jerusalem Move 'Regrettable':France's Macron
"This decision is a regrettable decision that France does not support and goes against international law and all the resolutions of the UN Security Council," Macron told reporters at a news conference.
Macron also called for calmness across the Middle East.
The French president's statement comes in the wake of Donald Trump's announcement that he declares Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and orderes the Department of State to take measures for the relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Rumours about Trump's intention spreaded after Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner hinted at possible announcement.
The Arab world fiercly condemned Trump's looming decision over Jerusalem's status, warning that such move would threaten the peace process in the region.
