Benjamin Netanyahu is due in West Africa this Sunday. It is the first visit by an Israeli prime minister to the region in more than 50 years. Netanyahu is to attend the ECOWAS Heads of State Summit in Liberia’s capital Monrovia. Leaders from up to 15 West African nations are also expected, alongside UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, and the chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki. Netanyahu is expected to sign a joint declaration for greater cooperation with ECOWAS countries. He is also seeking to strengthen economic ties. It’s the second time within 12 months that Netanyahu will be visiting Africa. In July 2016, he became the first Israeli premier in decades to travel to the continent, when he visited Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia.
