Bipartisan delegation led by Simon Birmingham to travel to Israel

A bipartisan delegation led by Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Birmingham will travel to Israel next week.

He will be joined by Labor MPs Josh Burns and Michelle Ananda-Rajah, plus Andrew Wallace and Zoe McKenzie from the Coalition, in a show of solidarity for the Middle Eastern nation.

The trip has piled more pressure on the Albanese ­government as both he and Foreign Minister Penny Wong are yet to announce plans to go.

It is understood the Greens will not be taking part.

In a statement to News Corp Senator Birmingham said: “With dozens of presidents, prime ministers and ministers from like-minded countries having visited Israel since the terrorist attacks of October 7, it is disgraceful that not one Albanese government minister has done so”.
