Diplomatic Achievement: Congo to Open Embassy in Jerusalem
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Thursday, September 21, with President Felix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
The two leaders discussed strengthening cooperation between the countries in the fields of agriculture, trade, defense, cyber and more. During the meeting, Netanyahu and Tshisekedi announced that Israel would open an embassy in Kinshasa, and Congo would move its embassy to Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "We just had very productive talks with the President of Congo, and we agreed that Israel will open an embassy in Kinshasa, and Congo will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - these are two good announcements and I think they reflect our common desire to upgrade our relations."
President Tshisekedi said, "I confirm that we had excellent discussions with the Prime Minister of Israel, Netanyahu. The discussions covered our excellent relations and how to reinforce those relations.”
Furthermore, the Pacific Islands nation of Fiji will send a delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister Villiame Gavoka to Israel this month, before opening an embassy in Jerusalem in 2024, Fiji officials said, fulfilling an election promise by Gavoka's political party. (INN / VFI News)
