Prime Minister Trudeau wants a better relationship with Israel

He was foreign secretary for two years, so he knows what he’s doing: the plan has probably come too far when new British Prime Minister Liz Truss pledged to Israel on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly to consider moving the kingdom’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

It would make Britain the first major Western country to follow former US President Trump’s policy of moving its embassy to the city, much to the delight of the Israeli government and the dismay of Palestinians and much of the world community. The territory was illegally annexed by Israel as part of negotiations with the Palestinians. Truss made this deliberate departure from international law public at the annual meeting of the United Nations in New York.

Secure support for the pro-Israel lobby in your own party during the election campaign

However, he had already announced his intention – seeking support for his candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party. In a letter to “Conservative Friends of Israel”, a lobby group within the Tories, whose supporter Truss probably wanted to defend the initiative.

At the same time, this break from previous British foreign policy meant a total departure from the EU position. Truss hopes his efforts will revive the “special relationship” with the United States.

He represents the position of American Republicans, but Democratic President Joe Biden has it Embassy transfer And not undone. In any case, he affirms a “very special relationship” with Israel.

For a possible solution to the Middle East conflict, the plan is a disaster. Either Truss isn’t interested in her, or she sees the problem solved by the power of truth. So she mentioned it Conflict and the Palestinians Not even in her letters to party friends. Self-interested motives and pressure to build stronger bilateral ties after leaving the EU could be a dangerous combination.
