2/12 Israeli MP to meet far-right Austrian vice chancellor

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

Yehuda Glick, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, will meet Heinz-Christian Strache “next week in Vienna”, the spokesman said. Glick is also due to meet Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl, another senior figure in Strache’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), the spokesman said without further details. The FPÖ agreed a deal with Austria’s conservatives in December to set up a coalition government following elections in October. The Israeli government said at the time it would work with the new Austrian coalition government but “for the moment” would not have direct contact with FPÖ ministers.
