Israeli Embassy In Accra Resumes Full Service After Brief Strike By Diplomats

 

The Embassy of Israel in Accra has announced that it has resumed full service until further notice.

On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, the Israeli mission in Ghana announced that 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,” it has suspended all diplomatic activities until further notice.

“No consular services will be provided and no one will be allowed to enter the Embassy,” the mission said.

Shortly after that announcement, the mission released another statement clarifying that despite the strike by its diplomats in Ghana, daily diplomatic activities will be carried out.

The mission said consular services, meetings and events will not be suspended.

In the latest statement issued on Thursday, October 31, 2019, the embassy stated that “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.”
