Australia recognizes West Jerusalem as Israel's capital

The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morison, announced that Australia recognizes West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

At least that. Maybe it is a good first step.

So, will Australia move its embassy to West Jerusalem?

Not so fast, buddy. Morrison says that they will not be moving the embassy to West Jerusalem at this time but will begin the search for a suitable site. They are planning to move the embassy when it will be practical, after a final status agreement with the Palestinians.

So basically never.

I am not sure why though. If they already recognize West Jerusalem as the capital, why does moving the embassy - to West Jerusalem - require waiting for a final status agreement? Get started now on moving it - find the site, start building or refurbishing the building, etc.

Nu nu.
