Jordan has welcomed President Donald Trump's decision to delay moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem.
But, as he has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if that move happens, but only when, it added.
President Donald Trump has temporarily waived a law requiring the U.S.to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Israeli media has reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet has met for special consultations with police, security services and the Israel Defence Force (IDF) in preparedness for "scenarios of worsening violence" if the USA does move its embassy to the city.
Signing the waiver prevents any move for the next six months. The deal, negotiated by the USA and other world powers, eased economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
Positioning the embassy in Jerusalem would tend to please Trump's conservative Jewish supporters and major donors, but not many liberals, the USA foreign policy establishment, the Palestinians or their Arab allies.
White House strategy chief Steve Bannon supports the move, but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is less keen and has said Trump is "being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact the peace process".
Within days of taking office on January 20, Trump kept his promise to withdraw the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation agreement finalized during the Obama administration that would have reduced prices and boosted sales overseas for automakers, farmers and tech companies.
"Since the disposition of Jerusalem is a final status issue that must be decided by the parties themselves, moving the embassy could cause significant harm to US credibility as a mediator in efforts to move toward a two-state peace agreement", the group said in a statement.

One official said that "all parties" - meaning both Israeli and Palestinian leaders - have been notified that the embassy would be staying in Tel Aviv.
The controversial election campaign promise was condemned by most of the worldwide community, as well as Palestinians and liberal Israeli circles, which view Israel's annexation of the east side of the city as illegal.
Christians United for Israel also expressed "disappointment" with Trump's decision.
Nabil Abu Rdainah, a close aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Trump's decision "reaffirms the seriousness of the United States in its efforts to achieve peace".
"In timing such a move he will seek to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians", he said.
During Mr Trump's visit to Israel and the West Bank last month the president reiterated his honest desire to broker a peace deal in the decades-long conflict.
