New British Prime Minister Liz Truss referred to herself as a “huge Zionist and a huge supporter of Israel,” reports the UK-based Jewish News.

Truss’s comments were made at a Conservative Friends of Israel reception, during which she said she will seek to “take the UK-Israel relationship from strength to strength.”

“In this world – where we are facing threats from authoritarian regimes who don’t believe in freedom and democracy – two free democracies, the UK and Israel, need to stand shoulder to shoulder and we will be even closer in the future,” Truss said.
