BRUSSELS: President Donald Trump is "very committed" to the Middle East peace process, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday amid global alarm at a US plan to recognise Jerusalem as Israel`s capital.

Tillerson said the US believes "there is a very good opportunity for peace to be achieved" between Israel and the Palestinians, despite international outcry over Trump`s decision on Jerusalem.

"The president is very committed to the Middle East peace process," Tillerson told reporters at a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.

He said a small team led by Trump`s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has been "engaged in a quiet way" in the region to try to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"We continue to believe there is a very good opportunity for peace to be achieved and the president has a team that is devoted to that entirely," Tillerson said.

Trump`s decision to back Israel`s claim on Jerusalem -- which he is due to announce at 1800 GMT -- has triggered a chorus of international concern, amid fears that it could sink any hope of new peace talks.
