Prime Minister Netanyahu at the start of the meeting:
“The most important thing is give my warmest regards to your father and to the people of Chad. I mentioned our relations in the discussions about beginning peace with the Emirates. I mention it and I want to do more than mention it. I want to be able to advance it even further. So welcome. It’s good to see you.”

We call upon the UK Government to officially recognise Jerusalem is Israel's capital and move its embassy to Jerusalem.
