Before a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at NATO, Johnson said the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Israel “makes it more important than ever that the long-awaited American proposals on the Middle East peace process are now brought forward,” he said.

“That should happen as a matter of priority,” he said.
