Five MKs will travel to the UK Sunday to hold discussions with British lawmakers concerning the Francop Iranian weapons shipment, MK Nahman Shai (Kadima) announced in a statement Thursday. Shai, who serves as the head of an Israel-British inter-parliamentary friendship association, said that nearly two months ago, he was asked by Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin to advance relations between the two nations' parliaments and improve Israel's image in the UK. The British public, judicial and economic spheres have witnessed an increase in anti-Israel leanings in recent years. MKs attending the trip Sunday will include Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), Anastasia Michaeli (Israel Beitenu), Majallie Whbee (Kadima) and Yitzhak Vaknin (Shas). They will meet with members of the British parliament, government officials and members of the press. Shai said in his statement that "in the war on terror, including the Goldstone report, Israel is uniquely positioned and fights an international, just and moral battle."
