Statement from ZFA President Philip Chester PM on Netanyahu’s visit to Australia in July

Thursday 20 March 2014

Philip Chester said, “We are very excited at the prospect of the first ever serving Israeli PM accepting PM Abbott’s invitation to visit Australia in July.

The fact that PM Netanyahu is prepared to take a significant period of time away from home travelling to Australia with all of the critical issues that he has to deal with,speaks highly of the regard with which Australia is held as a staunch friend of the State of Israel.

PM Netanyahu can be certain that he will receive a very warm welcome from the Government of Australia and the Australian Jewish community.”
