Pope Francis on Wednesday came out against President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"I make a heartfelt appeal so that all commit themselves to respecting the status quo of the city, in conformity with the pertinent resolutions of the United Nations," the pope said, according to several reports.

The pope said he has "deep concern" about the tensions Trump is creating with his decision. He said he wanted "wisdom and prudence prevail" in order to avoid more division in the region.

"Jerusalem is a unique city, sacred for Jews, Christians, and Muslims," the pope said.

Trump on Wednesday is expected to announce that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital. But he's also expected to delay a decision to move the U.S. embassy to that city.
