UK to use US embassy in Jerusalem al-Quds despite condemning move: Report
Tehran (KNA) - British officials are reportedly set to maintain formal communications with the American embassy in Israeli-occupied Jerusalem al-Quds despite condemning its recent relocation, in what activists have denounced as a hypocritical approach adopted by London on Tel Aviv’s occupation.
Last week, the UK, along with France, Germany and much of the international diplomatic corps, boycotted a ceremony held to inaugurate the US embassy in Jerusalem al-Quds, which took place months after Washington announced it was recognizing the occupied city as the “capital” of Israel.
However, three days after the inauguration ceremony, UK Middle East Minister Alistair Burt rejected a call by the British Palestinian Policy Council for London to keep up the boycott and refuse to attend meetings in the embassy, the Middle East Eye news portal reported on Monday.
