Scott Morrison eyes moving Australian embassy to Jerusalem

Australia will recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital..

Labor has accused Scott Morrison of putting political survival ahead of Australia's national interest in a desperate attempt to woo the Jewish vote by flagging the possibility of shifting Australia's embassy to Jerusalem and recognising the city as Israel's capital. 

Mr Morrison made the stunning announcement in a diplomatic move that would leave him isolated with US President Donald Trump as the only leader of a major country to do so, just days out from the crucial Wentworth byelectionwhere 13 per cent of voters are Jewish. 

Mr Morrison also announced that Australia would review its support for the Iranian nuclear agreement to see whether it was effective. 

While not a signatory, Australia had criticised Mr Trump's decision to withdraw from the agreement, with former foreign minister Julie Bishop arguing it would make it harder to convince the North Koreans to relinquish their weapons.
