Ariel Asks Australia to Fight Israel Boycotts


Building and Construction Minister Uri Ariel on Wednesday met Australian Ambassador to Israel, Dave Sharma, in the governmental complex in eastern Jerusalem, located north of the neighborhood of Shimon Hatzaddik (Sheikh Jarrah). In the meeting, Ariel called on Sharma to relay to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott his thanks for Abbott's, and Australia's, support for Israel.

Ariel also asked Sharma that Australia act in the international arena against the calls for a boycott against the Jewish state, while giving a clear message to the Palestinian Authority (PA) that a unilateral breach of the 1993 Oslo Accords by turning to the United Nations (UN) is unacceptable.
