(Worthy News) - Australia’s prime minister said on Tuesday he was open to shifting the Australian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in line with President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the contested holy city as Israel’s capital.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Tuesday that Australia remained committed to finding a two-state solution to Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians.
Morrison said the idea was suggested to him by a former ambassador to Israel, Dave Sharma, who is a candidate for Morrison’s conservative Liberal Party at a crucial by-election on Saturday in a Sydney electorate with a large Jewish population.
