Long-time Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is slated to land in Israel tomorrow for a two-day visit intended to advance bilateral ties.
It will focus on enhancing cooperation in the fields of energy, water, agriculture and food security.
Rutte will meet Prime Minister Yair Lapid, Defense Minister Benny Gantz and opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu. He will also speak with President Isaac Herzog.
Israel’s Ambassador to The Netherlands Modi Ephraim will join Rutte for the visit.
Lapid invited Rutte to visit in July, when the Dutch leader called to offer his congratulations on assuming the premiership. They spoke then about Iran and the war in Ukraine.
