The Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has written a letter to the US President-elect Donald Trump, warning him against moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Mahmoud Abbas says the move would have "a disastrous impact on the peace process, the two-state solution and on the stability and security of the entire region."
