Prime Minister Naftali Bennett tweets congratulations to the new prime minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese.

“Israel and Australia are close friends and I look forward to working together with @AlboMP to deepen that friendship & strengthen the bond between our nations,” Bennett tweets.

Bennett also adds his thanks to outgoing Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison “for being a good friend and a valuable partner. I wish you all the best.”

Morrison conceded defeat yesterday to Albanese, ending the Liberal Party’s nine-year rule of Australia.
