Reports: Australia to recognize Jerusalem as capital

The Australian government is expected to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, according to reports in Australian media on Tuesday.


The Australian cabinet is to approve the decision on Tuesday, after the National Security Committee of Cabinet approved it on Monday.
