Australia to Recognise Jerusalem as Israeli Capital – Reports

While Israel considers Jerusalem its capital, including the eastern part of the city seized from Jordan in 1967, the international community does not recognise the occupation of East Jerusalem, claiming that its status should be determined on the basis of an agreement with the Palestinians.
The Australian government is due to ratify a decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital later on Tuesday and will formally announce the move on Wednesday, according to Australia’s SBS News.

 
Israel considers Jerusalem its capital, including the eastern part of the city, seized from Jordan during the Six-Day War in 1967.
