UK Prime Minster tells Lapid United Kingdom Might Move Embassy to Jerusalem




British Prime Minister Liz Truss told Israel’s Prime Minister Yair Lapid this week in a sideline meeting at the UN that she is considering the “current location of the British Embassy in Israel”—a nod to indicate she wants to move it to Jerusalem. As the UK Foreign Minister, Truss vowed to explore the idea of a move.


Prior to becoming prime minister, Truss told the Conservative Friends of Israel that she understood the “importance and sensitivity” of the location and vowed to move it to Israel’s capital.


If Truss makes good on her campaign promise, she will follow in the footsteps of the US, Guatemala, Kosovo, Honduras, and others who have already moved (or plan to) their diplomatic headquarters from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In addition, the Dominican Republic, Suriname, Equatorial Guinea, Malawi, and Ecuador have all announced intentions to move their embassy or another prominent office to Jerusalem.


Even though Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital city since the 1967 war, Britain has maintained its embassy in Tel Aviv since the dissolution of the British Mandate of Palestine, right before Israel became a nation again.


Truss and Lapid also discussed how to stop the growing threat of a nuclear Iran and how to increase economic ties between Israel and the UK. Lapid offered his sympathies at the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
