Azeri Foreign Minister to Visit Israel for Embassy Inauguration
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister, Jeyhun Bayramov, is set to visit Israel at the end of March to take part in the inauguration of his country’s embassy in Tel Aviv, Israeli media reported on Monday, March 6.
Bayramov’s trip is scheduled for March 29 and he will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Eli Cohen, and President Isaac Herzog.
The trip will mark the first visit by an Azerbaijani official to the Jewish state in a decade. It will come after Cohen invited Bayramov in January.
Last November, the Azerbaijani parliament announced its historic decision to open an embassy in Israel.
Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev later signed an order on the establishment of the embassy, which will be located in Tel Aviv, and will be the first embassy in Israel of a country with a Shiite majority and a Shiite government. (INN / VFI News)
