In a sign of Israel’s blossoming ties with Africa, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced Thursday evening that in two-weeks he will attend a summit of the 15-member Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to be held in Liberia.
This will be Netanyahu’s second trip to Africa in less than a year. Last July he travelled to four east African countries – Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia – for the first visit by a sitting Israeli prime minister to Africa in 29 years. He is also scheduled to take part in a summit in Togo in September.
