Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to visit Uganda on Monday next week, Africa Tembelea has learnt.

According to Ofwono Opondo, the government of Uganda spokesman, Netanyahu who will travel with a contingent of 45 people, is expected to meet Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni for bilateral talks.

However, Africa Tembelea understands that Netanyahu’s visit to Uganda is expected to coincide with Uganda’s announcement of it’s planned move of its relations office to Jerusalem.

Uganda currently has no embassy in Israel, but has diplomatic relations, with the Israel embassy in Kenya handling Kampala affairs.

If Uganda moves, it will be the third nation to designate Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, following American, Guatemala and Paraguay, the latter which has since withdrawn the decision.

Afew days back, Netanyahu met with US President Donald Trump, at which meeting a peace deal with the Palestinians was announced.

Trump promised “a new dawn” in unveiling, side-by-side with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, the plan that was angrily rejected as biased by the Palestinians.

France on its part has insisted on a “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
