Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu is going to meet with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on August 18. This was reported by the press service of Israel's government, as cited by News.ru.
Netanyahu is going to participate in the remembrance ceremony of Babyn Yar tragedy victims (massacres were carried out by German forces and Ukrainian collaborators during their campaign against the Soviet Union in World War II. The first, and best documented, of the massacres took place on 29–30 September 1941, killing approximately 33,771 Jews, - ed.). He is planning to come back to Israel on August 19.
We recall that Ukraine has almost completed the process of creating a free trade zone with Israel. On July 11, our parliament ratified the relevant agreement, previously signed by the government in January of this year. 230 MPs voted for it.
As it was reported earlier, Israel had a right to annex at least some, but “unlikely all,” of the West Bank, the United States ambassador, David M. Friedman, said in an interview to The New York Times.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had promised to begin annexing Jewish settlements in the West Bank, a move that would violate international law and could be a fatal blow to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
