Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked the Turkish President for the productive cooperation by their countries’ security services, which thwarted the malicious intent of terrorist cells to attack Israeli targets in Istanbul, thereby saving lives. The two leaders extended reciprocal invitations to visit Israel and Türkiye; it was agreed to coordinate the visits, which will take place soon.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s office described his meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as “cordial.” Prime Minister Netanyahu made it clear that Israel would continue to assist Ukraine on humanitarian issues, including dealing with anti-personnel mines.

Israel has provided a great deal of aid to Ukraine in the almost 19 months the country has suffered under an unprovoked Russian invasion and attempt to annex that nation. For example, Israel send mobile field hospitals complete with advanced medical equipment, doctors and nurses to treat Ukrainian refugees who were forced to flee their country.

There are also a considerable number of Ukrainian refugees currently provided with shelter in Israel.

However, some Ukrainian officials, including its President, have complained that Israel has not done enough to aid in its defense. Ukraine wanted Israel to provide it with Iron Dome ant-missile technologies, but Israel declined.

In his meeting with and Paraguay’s President Santiago Peña, Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would continue to lead a strategic change in Israel’s relations with the countries of Latin America. He added that he intends to lead Israel-Paraguay relations during President Peña’s tenure to new heights.

The Prime Minister also emphasized that it was important that the friendly relations between the two countries also be expressed in Paraguay’s support in international forums, and that Israel would be pleased to assist Paraguay in various fields, especially cyber.

Paraguayan President Peña informed Prime Minister Netanyahu that it was his intention to return the Paraguayan Embassy to Jerusalem by the end of the year. At the same time, Israel will reopen its embassy in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion.

“I’m very happy to say that President Santiago Peña and I had a very productive discussion about upgrading the relations of Paraguay and Israel,” said Benjamin Netanyahu. “The most important thing we’re going to do right away is to reopen the Paraguayan Embassy in Jerusalem and to reopen the Israeli Embassy in Asuncion. We’re going to do in the month of November alongside a general plan to lift up our relations in many ways. I welcome that opportunity and I congratulate both of us.”

“Prime Minister, almost three years ago I visited Jerusalem,” said President Peña. “I was just a politician dreaming about a different Paraguay. I said to you in that meeting that Paraguay will reopen and will put the embassy where it belongs, in the city of Jerusalem.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also met with German Chancellor Olaf Schulz in New York on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, said his office, thanked Chancellor Schultz for his commitment to Israel and Germany’s commitment to national security and the preservation of the special relationship.

The two leaders discussed Iran’s defiant actions in spreading global terrorism and pursuing nuclear weapons. Prime Minister Netanyahu emphasized that Iran’s announcement regarding the removal of some of the IAEA inspectors from Iran’s nuclear facilities should not be accepted.

In addition, the two discussed the strengthening of the security cooperation between the countries, headed by the agreement for the supply of the Arrow 3 air defense system that was recently agreed upon. This is a continuation of the strategic dialogue between Israel and Germany, which was held recently under the leadership of the advisors.

Prime Minister Netanyahu told German Chancellor Schulz, “Iran’s announcement must not be accepted regarding the removal of some of the IAEA inspectors from Iran’s nuclear facilities.”
