Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman will leave on Sunday afternoon for a five-day visit to Denmark and the Netherlands, accompanied by Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon.
The Foreign Ministry announced that in Copenhagen, Lieberman will meet with Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig MÃ¸ller, Justice Minister Brian Mikkelsen, other lawmakers and members of the local Jewish community.
The foreign minister will also take part in a ceremony at the memorial site for the Jews of Denmark who were sent to the Terezinstadt concentration camp, where he will lay a wreath in their memory.
In The Hague, Lieberman will meet with Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen, President of the House of Representatives Gerdi A. Verbeet, and members of the Dutch Jewish community.
The ministry said discussions in both countries would focus on the upgrading of Israel's relations with the European Union as well as bilateral issues. It said Lieberman would also discuss regional issues, including the violation of UN Security Council resolutions by Iran and Syria in the wake of Israel's interception of the Hizbullah-bound arms ship last week, and the importance of democratic states opposing the Goldstone Commission's report in order to continue the fight against terrorism.
