Embassy of Armenia to open in Israel

Embassy of Armenia to open in Israel

ArmInfo. An embassy of Armenia will open in Israel. The decision on this was made at a meeting of the RA government on September 19. Presenting the draft  decision, RA Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan recalled that  diplomatic relations between the two states were established in April  1992, however, until now Armenia was represented in Israel by a non-  resident ambassador. 

The opening of the embassy, which will be located in Tel Aviv, is due  to the fact that the State of Israel is a very important geopolitical  player, whose policy is directly related to regional stability. In  addition, the opening of the embassy will provide an opportunity at  the legal level to ensure the centuries-old presence of Armenians in  the country, to support the rich history and cultural and historical  monuments of the Armenian people. Also, according to the minister,  the opening of a diplomatic mission will allow to intensify bilateral  relations, develop ties in a number of areas, increase the country's  representation in the region, protect the interests of Armenia, based  on those issues, the solution of which requires an embassy.

Speaking about the timing of the opening of the diplomatic mission,  Zohrab Mnatsakanyan pointed out the need to resolve on a bilateral  basis a number of organizational issues that require a certain period  of time.  Meanwhile, as noted in the certificate, the rationale for  the draft decision, the Armenian side intends to open the embassy as  soon as possible - in late 2019 - early 2020.
