British Prime Minister Theresa May says she is “proud of the role” the UK initially played in establishing the Israeli regime.
“We are proud of the role that we played in the creation of the State of Israel, and we will certainly mark the centenary with pride,” May told the House of Commons during Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday.
According to the prime minister, London should also be mindful about the “sensitivities” in regard to Balfour Declaration, a public statement issued by the UK government during World War I, announcing support for establishment of the regime.
“We also must be conscious of the sensitivities that some people do have about the Balfour Declaration. We recognize that there is more work to be done,” said the British premier.
