Haaretz added that one possible step that Vienna may take is a "a declaration on the status of Jerusalem". While Strache has "expressed support for moving the embassy", Kurz has said "that Austria would not be the first European Union member to do so.

However, sources claim, "when Austria ceases to be president of the EU at the end of this year, the situation could change and enable some measures, such as moving tourist, culture and commercial affairs of the Austrian embassy to Jerusalem, as was done by the Czech Republic".
