LONDON, Thursday, September 22, 2022 (WAFA) – Palestine’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom Husam Zomlot decried today remarks recently made by British Prime Minister Liz Truss in which she declared her country’s possible relocation of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in the near future.

"It is extremely unfortunate that Prime Minister Liz Truss uses her first appearance at the UN to commit to potentially breaking international law by promising a “review” of the location of the British embassy to Israel," Zomlot said in a tweet.

He continued, "Any embassy move would be a blatant violation of international law and the UK's historic responsibilities. It undermines the two-state solution and enflames an already volatile situation in Jerusalem, the rest of the occupied territories and among communities in the UK and worldwide."

"Such promise is immoral, illegal and irresponsible!," he stressed.
