Follow the example of the United States? Australia considers moving the embassy to Jerusalem

US Bloomberg News on the 16th, Australia is considering moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Australia should be open to this matter. On Tuesday (16th), Australian Prime Minister Morrison told the media that we are committed to the 'two-state plan' (solving the Palestinian-Israeli issue), but frankly, this is not so smooth.

Morrison said he would ask the cabinet to consider recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and agree to move the embassy. After talking with Morrison, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said through Twitter that I am very grateful to him and we will continue to strengthen our ties.

US President Trump announced in December 2017 that he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. On the day of the 70th anniversary of the founding of Israel on May 14, the opening ceremony of the US Embassy in Jerusalem was held.
