Media Coverage - UN Ambassdors July 2017

Thursday, July 20th, 2017


The Jerusalem Post:
AMBASSADOR to the United Nations Danny Danon achieved two missions simultaneously last week, when, in cooperation with AJC Project Interchange, and together with American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris, he led a delegation of nine UN ambassadors to Israel.

The delegation included ambassadors from Gabon, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Togo, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Poland and Estonia. Given the strenuous overtures that Israel is making toward Africa, the fact that the majority of ambassadors were African countries served a dual purpose.

During the five-day visit, which included Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, the northern and southern border areas, and even Ramallah, the ambassadors inspected centers for innovation in agriculture and water technology, met with experts in these fields and also discussed developments in the region with government officials.

But the most moving aspect of their visit was at the Galilee Medical Center, where director-general Dr. Masad Barhoum briefed them on the treatment of Syrians wounded during that country’s civil war. Over the past four years, he said, 1,600 Syrians, some suffering critical wounds, have been treated by GMC physicians and nurses. The number represents 70% of all wounded Syrians treated in Israel, he said. The ambassadors also had an opportunity to meet with some of the patients.
