Israel and Myanmar have committed to boosting bilateral ties during a visit by Myanmar’s military chief to the Middle East.
Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin discussed bilateral cooperation during their meeting in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
The Israeli president expressed gratitude for the help Myanmar extended to Israel when the country faced challenges during its early years and proposed cooperation between the countries’ cultural sectors.
Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said his brief visit to Israel was highly productive as he met Israel’s defence minister and toured Israeli industrial facilities.
After his meeting with the president, the Myanmar delegation toured Jerusalem’s Old City in a motorcade.
