Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu plans to fly to London to attend the funeral of his friend and the nation’s staunch ally, former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, on April 17.

Thatcher’s family invited Netanyahu to the funeral, the PMO said.

Long before he entered politics Netanyahu had admired Thatcher, particularly her economic vision for Great Britain which he felt could be applicable to Israel.

She sent him a handwritten note when he lost the prime minister’s race in 1999 and he traveled to London to visit her in 2000, according to the PMO.
