Israeli PM Heads to Kenya to Attend President’s Inauguration

JERUSALEM – Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi on Tuesday to attend the presidential swearing-in ceremony as well as meet with several African heads of state, the premier’s press office said.

Netanyahu arrived at the inauguration for Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta, who begins his second term as president after a re-run election that was boycotted by the opposition.

“I am now leaving for my third visit to Africa within a year-and-a-half,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

He said Israel’s intention was to deepen ties with Africa by forging links with countries that currently do not have diplomatic relations with his Middle Eastern nation.

“Legations from four African countries have opened in Israel in the past two years and I hope that by the end of the day I will be able to announce the opening of a new Israeli embassy in an African country,” Netanyahu added.

The Israeli leader is due to meet with his counterparts from Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, Togo, Botswana, Namibia and Ethiopia, the vice president of Nigeria and other top officials from different countries, according to local media.

In July 2016, Netanyahu traveled to Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia, becoming the first Israeli premier to visit Africa in decades.
