Kenya to revive relations with Israel

13 June 2014, 11:46

Nairobi - Israel Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, is expected to oversee the launch of direct flights between Nairobi and Tel Aviv when he visits the country next week.

Liberman is on a ten-day strategic visit to Rwanda, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Ethiopia and Kenya.

According to communication from the Embassy, Lieberman will be joined by a delegation from the Israel Export Institute that will include representatives from some 50 Israeli companies, with a goal of developing the economic ties between Israel and the African countries he will visit.

“In Kenya, Lieberman will inaugurate a direct airline route between Tel Aviv and Nairobi; will award prizes to children who participated in a drawing competition of pictures of the Holy Land marking 50 years of Israel-Kenya relations,” the Embassy stated.

He will also inaugurate a children’s cancer ward that the Israeli Embassy in Kenya refurbished.

The resumption of direct flights between the two countries marks a new beginning of stronger ties after a 12-year hiatus following an attack on an Israeli plane in the coastal city of Mombasa.

Kenya has over the years enjoyed a strong and fruitful relationship based on mutual friendship, respect and trust.  

The relationship has proved its value through numerous historical events and has remained steadfast due to continuous positive dialogue and effective bi-lateral cooperation.
