As official visits go, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trip to London earlier this week looked like a textbook lesson in how not to conduct diplomacy.In the full glare of the world's media, Netanyahu arrived at U.K. Prime Minister's Theresa May's residence at 10 Downing Street only to find himself locked out and left standing in the street on his own for what seemed an eternity. May smiled and stressed the importance her government attaches to a two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.May has asked the U.N. to examine whether the tests breached any resolutions, but U.K. government officials insist it is a separate issue from the 2015 nuclear accord that lifted a host of sanctions on Iran in return for curbing its nuclear program.Turkey's current trade with the U.K. amounts to around 16 billion pounds a year.The U.K. is already Israel's second-largest trading partner, with bilateral trade worth 5 billion pounds a year.However, during this month's EU summit in Malta European leaders openly expressed fears that May's desperation for post-Brexit allies is pushing her too far toward Trump, and a softening of U.K. opposition to Israeli settlement expansion.
