The Australian local paper reports that Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is set to be ratified at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. It was approved by the national security committee on Monday. If ratified, an announcement will be made on Wednesday.
“However, the embassy won’t be moved from Tel Aviv just yet,” Australian public television station SBS reported. “Instead a consular office will be opened, due to the cost of the move, pegged at $200 million.”
