Police completed extensive security preparations for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Sunday arrival and four-day stay in the capital, National Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

Harper was greeted at Ben-Gurion International Airport by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, and subsequently met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.

On Monday Harper will have formal meetings with Netanyahu in the capital, followed by a meeting in Ramallah with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Rosenfeld said Sunday that Harper will be escorted at all times by police, in coordination with Border Security teams, to and from the airport and throughout Jerusalem.

“Security measures have been taken to ensure the Canadian prime minster’s safety at all times,” said Rosenfeld. “He will be accompanied by uniformed officers, as well as undercover officers, throughout his visit.”

Due to the extensive security motorcade accompanying Harper’s visit, Rosenfeld said certain roads in Jerusalem will periodically be closed. They include Agron Road, Jabotinski Road, Ramban Road, Rupin Road and David Hamelech Road.
