Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Richard Verber has praised the UK government for voting against a hostile World Health Organisation (WHO) resolution on Israel.

He said: “Thank you to the UK Government for taking a principled stand by voting against a resolution condemning Israel at the World Health Assembly of the WHO. The only resolution dealing with a specific country was aimed at Israel. In doing so, the UK rejected the politicisation of the important issue of health and the unacceptable anti-Israel bias present in UN bodies.”
