Herzog Hosts Weah in Jerusalem, Assures Of Increased Trade And Bilateral Relations
According to the July 4, 2023 edition of the Jerusalem Post online newspaper, the Israeli President, Isaac Herzog during a chat with his Liberian counterpart, urged Liberia to open an embassy in Jerusalem.
He told President Weah that if that happens, there will be a dramatic increase in trade and bilateral relations.
Just over a year ago, Liberia announced that it was opening a trade office in Jerusalem and that this office would eventually become an embassy.
As yet, there has been no further progress, but President Isaac Herzog raised the issue on Tuesday when he met with Liberian President George Weah, who is on a working visit to Israel.
Weah arrived in Jerusalem on Monday with a large ministerial delegation. He is scheduled to leave on Thursday. One of the first places that he visited was the Western Wall, where he prayed for success, peace for his people, and protection for his family. The first part of the prayer related to the upcoming presidential elections on October 10.
