Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold told the Jerusalem Post, “A mistaken impression exists that Israel is facing a new level of diplomatic isolation, but when you sit in the office of the director-general of the Foreign Ministry, you quickly understand that is simply not true.”
Israel’s relations in Asia are opening up, with growing ties with India, China, Japan and Vietnam, said Gold.
Moreover, “the Arab world is interested in talking to Israel,” Gold says. “Israel has many new friends in the world.”
He also noted that Europeans, who are facing a massive influx of migrants, “are beginning to think much more seriously about their need to have defensible borders for Europe.”
