Netanyahu Says ICL, Netafim Leading Way on Ethiopia Investment

  • Israeli leader cites $1 billion ICL spent buying potash mine
  • Ethiopian prime minister urges Israelis to seek more deals

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrapped up a trip to four countries in east Africa by encouraging Israelis to invest in Ethiopian businesses while seeking political support to block the frequent condemnations Israel receives at the United Nations.

Netanyahu also hinted at warming relations with Muslim countries that he didn’t identify, denied that Kenyan authorities foiled an assassination attempt in Nairobi, and stopped to gaze at two lions on a stroll with Ethiopian President Mulatu Teshome on his palace grounds.
