And now Israel has confirmed its participation in the Expo next year, making it the most inclusive and international Expo ever organised.
This is HUGE!
Israel’s ministry said it “looks forward to sharing our innovative spirit and advances” at the 2020 Expo in Dubai
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel’s participation is another expression of the state’s “rising status in the world and the region”
In fact, despite severing all diplomatic relations with Qatar in 2017, the organisers of Expo 2020 are currently in talks with the Doha government to participate in the event.
With the spirit of tolerance and inclusivity at its heart, Expo 2020 is shaping up to be a truly global platform for all of humanity
BIE Secretary General Vicente G. Loscertales: “By inviting all countries of the world to take part, including the State of Israel, the organisers of Expo 2020 are genuinely reflecting the universal spirit of World Expos.” https://t.co/TB7CdK1Ia0
