The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to advise members of the public that, in a virtual meeting held today, 22 January, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Darren A. Henfield, MP, received the Copie d’Usage of H. E. Zvi Tal, Israeli Ambassador-designate to The Bahamas.

In a brief meeting held after the Minister received the Copie d’Usage, both sides acknowledged the longstanding friendship and cordial relations between The Bahamas.  Matters of mutual interests were discussed, in particular the COVID-19
Pandemic and the need to ensure affordable access to the COVID vaccine.

The Minister thanked the Government of Israel for the humanitarian assistance and ongoing support provided to The Bahamas for restoration and reconstruction activities in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.  Such support included the provision of potable water supplies.  The Ambassador emphasized Israel’s commitment to continue providing technical assistance to help build resiliency.

Both sides agreed on the need to continue the deepening of relations, for which technical meetings will be held during the course of the year.

While the presentation of the Copie d’Usage will allow the Ambassador-designate to undertake activities at the functional level, he will present his Letters of Credence formally to the Governor-General at a later date.
