Australia welcomes Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu E-mail

After visiting Singapore, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife were welcomed by Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife Lucy on 22 February at the start of a four-day visit to the country. Prime Minister Netanyahu inspected an honour guard and received a salute.

“I’m honoured to be the rst Israeli Prime Minister to officially visit Australia. God, it’s been a long time coming! It celebrates, really, 100 years of friendship of Australia to the Jewish people and their state,” commented Prime Minister Netanyahu.

On his first day in Australia, Mr Netanyahu repeated several times how much the country had done for Israel – from liberating Beersheba in WWI to playing a key role in the establishment of Israel as a state in 1947. “We are going to celebrate this and I’ve invited you, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and your delegation to mark this extraordinary event,” Netanyahu added.
