Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he will discuss a potential move of Australia's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, from Tel Aviv, before he makes a final decision, but that he is open to the idea.
While the possibility of relocating the Australian embassy to Jerusalem was welcomed by Netanyahu, Morrison's critics blamed the PM of catering to the Jewish electorate of Wentworth, where former Ambassador Sharma is trailing behind in the opinion polls ahead of the crucial parliamentary by-election scheduled this week.
The Trump administration turned its back on decades of U.S. policy by recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moving the USA embassy from Tel Aviv in May.
Morrison told news site The Australian on Monday that the recognition of Jerusalem had previously been discussed by top cabinet members, including former foreign minister Julie Bishop, after Trump announced the United States recognition of the Israeli capital last December. "I'm very thankful to him for this".

Labor is concerned the approach could undermine the prospect of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.
Morrison also said Australia would review its support for the Iran nuclear deal, under which sanctions were lifted in return for restraints on its nuclear programme "to determine whether our current policy settings remain fit for purpose".
Earlier on Monday, Sharma argued in favor of recognizing Jerusalem during a election event in Bondi.
"When sensible suggestions are put forward that are consistent with your policy positioning and in this case pursuing a two-state solution, Australia should be open-minded to this and I am open-minded to this and our government is open-minded to this", Morrison told reporters.
