Israel 'postpones' strategic dialogue with Britain: spokesman

3rd November 2010, Comments 0 comments

Israel has "postponed" all strategic dialogue with Britain in protest over a law which allows British courts to prosecute visiting Israeli officials for alleged war crimes, officials said Wednesday.

"The strategic dialogue has indeed been postponed," foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP shortly after British Foreign Secretary William Hague arrived for a two-day visit.

"The visit by Foreign Minister Hague is an important phase in the ongoing exchange between the countries and the question of Israeli officials being unable to travel to Britain will be on the top of the agenda as far as we are concerned," he said.
