Following the sudden resignation of British Prime Minister Liz Truss, the Israeli occupation expects Britain to maintain its intention to move its embassy to Jerusalem, Arabi 21 reported on Friday.
Israeli sources shared that Truss had ordered an investigation into the possibility of relocating the British embassy in Jerusalem before resigning.
Israeli sources reported by Israeli journalist Itamar Eichner in Yedioth Ahronoth revealed that British delegations visited Britain’s “own” land before 1948 to check the possibility of hosting a British embassy, at the behest of Truss.
Although no decision has been taken by London, Eichner hopes the delegation’s visit will pave the way for the UK embassy to be moved to Jerusalem.
Truss had already mentioned that she was thinking Move UK embassy to Jerusalem Before replacing Boris Johnson. No other British leader has made such statements.
Israeli officials said “She really likes the values that Israel stands for. He has been positive with us and we hope his government will be as well.
In previous statements, Truss has shared that his office “understands the importance and sensitivity of the issue” and that he believes change is possible.
Truss and Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid met when they served as their countries’ foreign ministers, and he described Lapid as a “close friend” in a letter to the pro-Israel lobby in his Conservative Party last November.
According to Eichner Arabic 21Israeli officials have announced they will reject moving the British embassy to Jerusalem, saying Britain has a range of interests in Arab and Muslim countries and is unwilling to commit to such a move.
