Tanzania has announced the opening of its first embassy ever in Israel, and set the date of the ribbon cutting for next week.
The May 8 ceremony will be attended by some of Tanzania’s highest political and diplomatic officials.
Foreign Minister Augustine Mahiga will be making a historic, first-ever trip to Israel for the event.
The announcement comes on the heels of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to Africa in 2017, the first time the Israeli chief had ever visited the area and after which he signed the “Africa Power” agreement.
From the Algemeiner:
Tanzania will open an embassy next week in Israel for the first time.
The grand opening of the embassy in Ramat Gan will be held on May 8 and be attended by Tanzania’s Foreign Minister Augustine Mahiga.
It will be Mahiga’s first visit to Israel.
Tanzania’s first ambassador to Israel, Daudi Masima, entered the role in June of last year. Prior to his appointment, Tanzania was represented by Honorary Consul Kasbian Nuriel Chirich, who worked to deepen bilateral ties between the countries.
The opening of the new embassy follows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official trip to Africa in 2017, and an official visit last month by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked to Tanzania.
