fqeer10CANBERRA (PNIC):-Australia has ruled out the the relocation of its embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds following the US decision to move its mission to the occupied city.

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said “there was no chance the government would adopt it (embassy relocation) as policy,” various media outlets reported on Saturday.

Her remarks came despite huge support from her Liberal Party’s youth arm for the embassy’s relocation.

The Young Liberal Movement tabled a non-binding motion on the move. It also called for the country to freeze aid to the Palestinian Authority “until it terminates its Martyr’s fund".

The Jordan-based fund is also known as the Palestinian National Fund. It is the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) umbrella group’s main financial body.
