The Israeli Embassy in Ghana has shut down due to a misunderstanding between Israeli diplomats and their country’s Ministry of Finance.
“No consular services will be provided and no one will be allowed to enter the Embassy,” a statement from the embassy said on Wednesday, 30 October 2019.
The statement said: “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 21 July 2019, and to apply a one-sided procedure that alters a protocol that has been in place for several decades, we are forced to suspend all diplomatic activities till further notice. No consular services will be provided and no one will be allowed to enter the Embassy.”
It added that: “Israeli diplomats are committed at all times to strive to enhance Israel’s strength and resilience. Unfortunately, the decision of the Israeli Ministry of Finance does not leave us any choice but to take the above-mentioned action, since the vital interests of the State of Israel have been harmed. We hope that this crisis will be resolved as soon as possible.”
