The United Kingdom welcomes Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to push off his government’s judicial overhaul push.

“It is vital that the shared democratic values that underpin the relationship are upheld,” says Foreign Secretary James Cleverly in a statement, “and a robust system of checks and balances are upheld.”

“We urge all parties to find common ground and seek a long-term compromise to this sensitive issue.”
