Episode details

Is Liz Truss about to go full Trump by relocating the UK Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? If so, it's a decision which would be loaded with political signifigance.

The PM told her Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid at the UN summit in New York last month that a move was under consideration.

The proposal has been condemned both nationally and internationally with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby warning that it could damage peace prospects.

Adrian Goldberg hears from former diplomat Alexandra Hall Hall – her 30 years in The Foreign Office included heading the Middle East Peace Process Section. She was also head of the UK’s Human Rights Department and advised the US State Department on Human Rights and Democracy in the Middle East.
