Former Prime Minister John Howard

Howard supports Israeli embassy move


I can't accept that Australian foreign policy, particularly on something as basic as where we put an embassy, should be determined by other countries

Former Prime Minister John Howard is strongly backing Scott Morrison's interest in moving Australia's embassy in Israel. Mr Howard has told The Australian that the government must establish its own foreign policy following criticism from international partners. Indonesia's Trade Minister has signalled the nation will not sign a Free Trade Agreement with Australia while Malaysia's Prime Minister has warned a global terror threat could occur if the embassy were to be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
