London : British Prime Minister Theresa May has taken the unusual step of distancing her government from President Barack Obama’s criticism of Israel, reports AP.

  A spokesman for May said the British government does not think it is “appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically elected government of an ally.” The comments made yesterday were in response to US Secretary of State John’s Kerry’s outspoken speech challenging the Israeli government’s policy on settlement expansion and other issues. May’s spokesman, speaking anonymously in line with government rules, said it was wrong to focus solely on the settlement issue when the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is so complex. The comments bring Britain’s government more closely into line with the view of President-elect Donald Trump, who has said the Obama administration is being far too harsh toward Israel.
