Vice President of Equatorial Guinea Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue meets with new President Isaac Herzog in Jerusalem.

Nguema — the son of Equatorial Guinea’s president — arrived on Sunday for a four-day visit that includes meetings with Herzog, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and other Israeli officials to sign mutual agreements. He is slated to visit Yad Vashem tomorrow.

Nguema’s visit is also slated to include a visit to citizens of Equatorial Guinea who are hospitalized in Sheba Medical Center. They were brought to Israel in March after the IDF sent a humanitarian delegation to the country following deadly blasts at a military camp that killed more than 100 people.

In February, the country’s President Teodoro Mbasogo announced that plans to move the country’s embassy to Jerusalem in the future.
