Israeli Embassy in Accra suspends strike

Rawlings and Shani Cooper after the meeting

The Israeli Embassy in Ghana has resumed operations 24 hours after suspending its services over a misunderstanding with its Finance Ministry.

“Due to the decision of the Israeli Ministry of Finance to breach understandings that were agreed upon and signed by the Director General of the Ministry of Finance on July 21, 2019, and to apply a one-sided procedure that alters a protocol that has been in place for several decades, we are forced to suspend all diplomatic activities till further notice. No consular services will be provided and no one will be allowed to enter the Embassy,” it said in a statement on Wednesday.

However, a statement copied to DailyMailGH from the embassy on Thursday said: “The Embassy of Israel in Accra would like to announce that it has resumed work until further notice.”

It added: “All diplomatic and consular services are fully active and the embassy is working in full capacity. The Embassy will soon contact individually all those applying for consular services to resume their process.”

“The Embassy of Israel to Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone is committed to working towards strengthening the already existing good relations between the countries and is doing so every day.

“We greatly appreciate all your support and patience,” it concluded.
