Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein flew to Vienna Monday, where he plans to meet with Austrian President Heinz Fischer, Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz and Parliament President Doris Bures.

Edelstein will participate in a ceremony at the Austrian Parliament Tuesday posthumously honoring 11 Austrian Righteous Among the Nations, non-Jews who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. The event was organized by Bures and the Israeli Embassy in Austria, and Ambassador Zvi Heifetz will present the award granted by Yad Vashem.

The Knesset Speaker also plans to speak out against improvements in Austrian-Iranian relations ahead of Fischer's planned visit to Teheran, emphasizing the danger a nuclear Iran will present to the whole world.
