British PM to visit Israel, Palestinian territories: Officials
London: British Prime Minister David Cameron will make the first visit of his premiership to Israel this week, officials said today.
Cameron will travel to Israel on Wednesday before holding talks with counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu and delivering a keynote speech to Israel`s parliament.
He will also visit the Palestinian territories and discuss the peace process with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas during his two-day trip.
The British government has not released any further details of the visit, but the Knesset said in a statement last week that Cameron`s address is due to take place on Wednesday.
It will be Cameron`s first visit to Israel since he was elected to power in 2010, though the Conservative leader did visit while he was in opposition.
He had been scheduled to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories on February 18 and 19 but stayed in Britain to deal with winter storms and widespread floods which battered the country.
There had been speculation he might be forced to postpone again due to a strike by workers at the Israeli foreign ministry.
