Israeli Diplomat Visits Muslim African Nation With No Formal Ties to Israel
JNS.org – Israeli Foreign Ministry Director General Dore Gold visited the African country of Guinea, a Muslim nation that does not have diplomatic relations with Israel.
Gold’s three-day trip to West Africa included a visit to Guinea’s capital, Conakry, to meet with President Alfa Conde and ten government ministers.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently announced plans to visit many West African countries by the end of the year, hoping to improve Israeli-African relations by focusing on the shared interests of development and fighting Islamic terror.
In July, Netanyahu traveled to East Africa to re-establish ties with Guinea. A few days later, Gold also visited the president of another Muslim African nation, Chad, which also has no diplomatic ties to Israel.
