AUSTRALIA-EAST JERUSALEM
Australia's FM assures Muslim ambassadors that Australia's Palestine policy remains unchanged

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 19, 2014 1:54 AM EDT
CANBERRA, Australia


Australia's foreign minister has assured ambassadors from Arab and Islamic countries at a meeting in her office that her government's position on the Palestinian territories has not changed, despite the government changing its description of East Jerusalem from "occupied" to "disputed."

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop described her meeting on Thursday with envoys of up to 18 countries accredited in Canberra, including Jordon, Iraq, Iran and Egypt, as "constructive."

Attorney-General George Brandis provoked threats of trade sanctions from the Muslim world when he told a Senate committee on June 5 that Australia had dropped the term "occupied" in its description of East Jerusalem because it was "neither appropriate nor useful."
