Morrison "informed me that he is considering officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel & moving the Australian embassy to Jerusalem".
The Australian prime minister said one possibility could include recognising a Palestinian Authority capital in East Jerusalem and Israeli capital in West Jerusalem.
Australia is considering following US President Donald Trump's lead in moving the nation's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
"And I was very pleased by the warm exchange I had yesterday with the President".
While the Israeli Government welcomed the Prime Minister's comments, the reaction within Israel has been muted, with Israeli media noting that an Australian Government statement acknowledged East Jerusalem could be the capital of a future Palestinian state.
Trump's move ruptured decades of global consensus that Jerusalem's status should be settled as part of a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

The main opposition Labor party, which polls show is on track to win national elections that must be held by May, said Tuesday's announcement showed just how desperate the government is to win in Wentworth.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is considering the move.
"This is of great importance to remind them that this does not go with worldwide law, with global relations... and puts Australia in contradiction to the rest of the world when it comes to Jerusalem and the status of Jerusalem", he said.
"This is all in the context of me continuing our support for the two-step [sic] solution policy in the Middle East", Morrison added.
But Morrison denied the United States influenced his announcement.
Joyce said that he wasn't proposing that the move would necessarily hurt trade relationships, arguing that countries were unlikely to stop trade with the United States despite the Trump administration's decision to move its embassy. "We do so in our own national interests consistent with our own beliefs and our own values".
