Australia has said it will no longer recognize West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Foreign Minister, Penny Wong, noted that the country is reversing a decision taken by the government of former Prime Minister Scott Morrison in 2018.

Wong reiterated that Australia’s embassy would remain in Tel Aviv and that Canberra was committed to a two-state solution in which Israel and a future Palestinian state coexist, within internationally recognized borders.

The status of Jerusalem is one of the biggest sticking points in attempts to reach a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
