Bolivia to Renew Israel Ties after Rupture under Morales

Bolivia to Renew Israel Ties after Rupture under Morales

Thursday, 28 November 2019 02:38 PM

LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Bolivia says it will restore diplomatic ties with Israel, a decade after then-President Evo Morales severed relations because of an Israeli military offensive in Gaza.

The renewal of ties with Israel was announced Thursday by Foreign Minister Karen Longaric as part of an overhaul of Bolivia’s foreign policy following Morales’ resignation this month.

Longaric says the interim government is moving to “rectify everything bad that happened under the previous administration.”

Bolivia’s interim government has also named Walter Oscar Serrate Cuellar as the new ambassador to the United States after an 11-year diplomatic rupture.

Morales, who espoused socialism, claimed victory in an Oct. 20 presidential election. But opposition protesters alleged fraud and the military turned on Morales, forcing him to resign and seek asylum in Mexico.
