Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, who is currently in New Zealand, inaugurated on Tuesday the new Israeli embassy building the capital, Wellington.
During the inauguration ceremony, Rivlin said that "we are opening a new page between Israel and New Zealand, leaving the past behind us. The new embassy will strengthen the bridge that we have built between the two democracies."
The ceremony was attended by Chairman of the Parliament of New Zealand, Dr Lockwood Smith, who visited Israel last year.
