Serbia will transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, becoming the first European country after the US to make the move, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday.

"I thank my friend the president of Serbia... for the decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to transfer his embassy there," Netanyahu said, adding that the controversial move would happen by July 2021.
