During his tenure, Kurz was known to be staunch advocate of Israel and spoke out against antisemitism.

“I am delighted to see you again, Sebastian. You have been a tremendous friend of the State of Israel, a champion of fighting anti-Semitism, a great leader for Austria,” said Netanyahu. “It’s good to see you again, back in Jerusalem. You are warmly welcomed as a friend.”

“It’s always good to be here,” replied Kurz, who was ousted in a vote of no confidence. “Thank you for taking time, for giving us an overview about Israel and the region, and the challenges you have in the region.”
