Australia is on track to step in the footsteps of the US and formally recognize West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison will give a speech to the Sydney Institute on Saturday to support his support for the Israeli government, The Weekend Australian reported.
Mr. Morrison will support the pressure to name the disputed city as the capital of Israel, convinced that it will continue the peace talks in the Middle East.
The Australian government has decided that Australia now recognizes West Jerusalem, as the seat of the Knesset and many of the government institutions, the capital of Israel, & # 39; is expected from Mr. Morrison.

He will also focus on the United Nations and accuse them of anti-Semitism.
Mr. Morrison will retaliate in response to the UN's refusal to recognize Israel's allegations of self-defense, as the militant Palestinian group continues to throw Hamas attacks into the country.
The Morrison government will also try to recognize a future Palestinian state.
Mr. Morrison made his position on West Jerusalem for the first time on the public days before the Wentworth election in October.
At the moment he openly broadcast his support of moving the Australian Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Mr. Morrison will support the pressure to name West Jerusalem (pictured) the capital of Israel, convinced that it will continue the peace talks in the Middle East.
He is expected to take the step on ice, at least until a peace settlement determines the final status of the city.
& # 39; And we look forward to moving our embassy to West Jerusalem if it is practical, in support of, and after, the final status determination, & # 39; Mr. Morrison will say in his speech.
In the meantime, a defense and trade office will be set up in Jerusalem.
The symbolic gesture is meant to represent the bilateral relationship between the two sides.
Mr. Morrison's remarks about the recognition of West Jerusalem also led to severe repercussions from the international community and placed Australia and Indonesia on a rocky bottom.
Head of the Palestinian delegation in Canberra Izzat Abdulhadi also warned that the decision could burden the relationship between Australia and the Middle East.
Mr Morrison is also expected to support the nuclear deal with Iran, a turnaround in his earlier wish to delete it.
He will also look at & # 39; autonomous penalties & # 39; against Iran, a response to the role of the country in sponsoring terrorism in the Middle East.
Mr. Morrison will also draw from the settlement activity in the Palestinian territories and say that the current settlements "undermine peace."
