Israel has relations with 46 member states of the African Union

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated in a statement that Israel will re-join the African Union as an observer state.

The move, according to the online newspaper, The Times of Israel, comes nearly two decades after Israel lost its observer status following the dissolution of the Organization of African Unity and the creation of the African Union.

It was reported that the Israeli ambassador in Addis Ababa, Aleli Admaso, presented his credentials as an observer in the African Union to the Chairman of the Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, at the organization’s headquarters in Addis Ababa, according to the statements of the two parties.

Israeli media quoted Foreign Minister Yair Lapid as saying, “This is a day of celebration for Israeli-African relations.”
