Israel’s Ambassador to the UK, Mark Regev, gave a video message for Israel’s 71st Independence Day this week where he praised the strengthening relationship of Israel and the UK and praised Israel’s success since 1948.

Ambassador Regev said:

“Israel is celebrating our 71st Independence Day and we have achieved so much over the last seven decades. And those achievements give me confidence and optimism as we look into the future.

I see Israel’s economy growing and growing. I see us building stronger relationships with countries around the world, and especially with countries in the region.

And here I see a growing partnership between Israel and the UK – a partnership that is always getting stronger.

For all those reasons and more, I’m proud and I’m happy on this independence day. Chag Atzmaut Sameach.”
