Bolivia’s Foreign Minister Karen Longaric announced Thursday that the state intends to renew its diplomatic relations with Israel after former President Evo Morales decided to sever relations in 2009.

Longaric said the government plans to renew relations with Israel, a move that may benefit local tourism, but did not specify an exact date for the move.

Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz welcomed the announcement: “I welcome the announcement by the Bolivian government of its intention to renew relations with the State of Israel, which will contribute to strengthening the State of Israel’s foreign relations and status in the world.”
