Foreign Minister Margot Wallström warns that USA President Donald Trump's forthcoming announcement to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the American embassy there from Tel Aviv, can lead to big consequences.

"It's catastrophic," Wallström says. "It's obviously going to lead to massive effects and unease. But now there are speculations around other solutions, so let's first see what he says."

Trump is expected to make the announcement on Wednesday evening, Swedish time.

Moving the embassy was a campaign promise Trump made during the election, but it will take several years to actually implement the move, according to a White House source quoted by news agency TT.
