Britain has no plans to move its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and still disagrees with the US decision to do so, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said on Monday.

"The PM said in December when the announcement was first made that we disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement. The British embassy to Israel is based in Tel Aviv and we have no plans to move it," the spokesman told reporters.

He was speaking on a day when the United States was due to open its embassy in Jerusalem, an event that has led to Palestinian protests.
