Speaking on their relationship with Africa, Emmanuel said Israel has been misconstrued adding that they are getting back to their old friends.
“Our relationship with Africa is extremely important,” Emmanuel said, insisting that the continent stands to benefit more from Israel.
“Israel is a peaceful nation that believes in the process of the world at these changing times,” Emmanuel disclosed, adding that they have different religions such as: Judaism, Christianity and Islam that live peacefully with one another.
