UK Conservative leadership contender Liz Truss said she would consider moving the British embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem if she becomes prime minister next month.
In a letter to the Conservative Friends of Israel, Truss wrote she understands the “importance and sensitivity” of the location of the British embassy in Israel.
“I’ve had many conversations with my good friend Prime Minister Lapid on this topic. Acknowledging that, I will review a move to ensure we are operating on the strongest footing within Israel.”
The U.S. became the first country to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem under former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Truss also pledged she would ensure the passage of a bill to end local councils bringing in Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) policies that target Israel.
