LONDON (AA) – British Prime Minister Liz Truss said she is a “huge Zionist” and a “huge supporter of Israel,” a video shared online showed.
The video, which was shared many times on social media platforms, shows Truss speaking at a Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) event during her party’s fall conference being held in Birmingham.
She said: “I am so pleased to be here for the first time at the CFI event as your prime minister.
“As you know I am a huge Zionist, I am a huge supporter of Israel, and I know that we can take the UK-Israel relationship from strength to strength.”
The party conference will end Wednesday, Oct. 5, with the Tories reeling from Truss reversing a top rate tax cut decision after strong opposition from her own party and historic losses for the British pound.
