Australia PM Mulls Moving Embassy to Jerusalem

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Monday that he will consider moving the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thereby recognizing the holy city as Israel’s capital.

“We’re committed to a two-state solution, but frankly it hasn’t been going that well, not a lot of progress has been made, and you don’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results,” Morrison stated.

Morrison will make an announcement today, which is set to be framed within a foreign policy statement, including an explanation as to why Australia will vote “no” to recognizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) as the chair of an important bloc of nations called the G77 in the UN, according to a report in The Australian.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Morrison by telephone and thanked him for his positive remarks. The two were also thought to have discussed ways to continue strengthening bilateral relations.
