CCUPIED JERUSALEM, PALESTINOW.COM — Australia formally recognizes occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but will not move its embassy there immediately, Astralian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday.
“Australia now recognizes West Jerusalem, being the seat of the Knesset and many of the institutions of government, is the capital of Israel,” Morrison said.
“We look forward to moving our embassy to West Jerusalem when practical,” he told reporters in Sydney.
Morrison said in October he was open to shifting Australia’s embassy from Tel Aviv.
