Australia Considers Recognising Jerusalem as Israel's Capital
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, whose government faces a crucial by-election that could weaken its grip on power, said on Oct. 16 Canberra was open to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and shifting its embassy there.
Such a move, which would follow U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial decision in December to do just that, would reverse decades of foreign policy and inflame tension with some of Australia's Asian neighbors.
