UK authorities ratify Palestine’s position on embassy in Israel

UK authorities ratify Palestine’s position on embassy in Israel

Ramallah, Nov 24 (Prensa Latina) British authorities ratified to maintain their embassy in Tel Aviv instead of moving it to Jerusalem, Wafa reported on Thursday.

According to the source, British Consul General in Jerusalem Diane Corner made this remark during a virtual meeting with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh.

The official also emphasized her Government’s commitment to the two-state solution.

During the meeting, Shtayyeh reported on the latest violations by the Israeli Army and settlers against the Palestinian people, including extrajudicial killings, arrests, daily raids, and settlement expansion, Wafa stated.

The then British Prime Minister Liz Truss announced her intention to move the embassy, but her successor Rishi Sunak reversed the project.

In 2018, former President Donald Trump moved the US diplomatic mission from Tel Aviv to the Holy City.

The decision sparked anger from Palestinians and Muslim nations, but his successor Joe Biden upheld it.
