FM Katz: The MFA has actively worked for a long period of time to promote the renewal of the relationship. The departure of President Morales and his replacement by a government friendly to Israel allows the fruition of the process.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Israel Katz:
“I welcome the announcement of the government of Bolivia regarding its intent to re-establish diplomatic relations with the state of Israel. This will contribute to the strengthening of the State of Israel’s foreign relations and its standing in the world.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has actively worked for a long period of time to promote the renewal of the relationship, also with the help of the Brazilian president and minister of foreign affairs, with whom I recently spoke on the subject at the UN Conference in New York.
“The departure of President Morales, who was hostile to Israel, and his replacement by a government friendly to Israel, allow the fruition of the process.”
