Liberia to open Jerusalem trade office that will one day become an embassy — report

Liberia intends to open a trade office in Jerusalem that will one day become an embassy, according to an Israeli report citing comments by a visiting ministerial delegation from the African country.

According to Ynet, the visiting delegation is headed by Minister of State for Presidential Affairs Nathaniel McGill, whose post is equivalent to prime minister in Israel.

The delegation — also including the country’s economy, trade and agriculture ministers — is said to have made the announcement in a meeting with President Isaac Herzog and Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll.

Liberia currently doesn’t have an embassy in Israel, but in recent years has taken a stand in favor of Israel in the UN and in the African Union.
