Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has not been shy about publicly backing Israel during his time in office.
Following the passage last December of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which deemed Israeli settlements to be illegal, Turnbull stated, “My government will not support one-sided resolutions criticizing Israel of the kind recently adopted by the Security Council and we deplore the boycott campaigns designed to delegitimize the Jewish state.”
Standing alongside Prime Minister Netanyahu in Sydney in February, Turnbull said of Australia-Israel ties, “We have so much in common – shared values, democracy, freedom, the rule of law. Two great democracies, one very small in area, one vast, but each of us big-hearted, generous, committed to freedom.”
