Netanyahu to visit 3 states never-before visited by sitting Israeli PM

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced at Sunday’s cabinet meeting that within the next three months he will travel to four countries, including three where no sitting Israeli prime minister has ever visited: Australia, Singapore and Kazakhstan.

The fourth country is Azerbaijan, a strategic country on Iran’s border. Like Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan is a majority Muslim country. He visited there briefly in 1997 on the way back from a visit to the East, and met in the airport in Baku with late Azerbaijani President Heydar Aliyev, the father of the current president.
