Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin is scheduled to arrive in Israel for talks on Wednesday, the highest-level Ukrainian official to visit since the crisis erupted with Russia earlier this year.

During the Ukrainian crisis, Israel took a doggedly neutral stand, partly out of a reluctance to do anything to anger the Russians.

In a related development, Israel and the Czech Republic will hold their third government-to-government meeting when Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka brings a large delegation of cabinet ministers to Jerusalem in late November for a meeting with their Israeli counterparts.

This will be the third such meeting between the two governments, indicating the closeness of ties between the two countries. The Czech Republic is among the friendliest countries toward Israel in the EU.

The first such meeting between the two governments was held in 2011 in Jerusalem, and the second took place in Prague in 2012. Last year’s meeting in Jerusalem was called off when the Czech government fell.

Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek is scheduled to visit Israel at the beginning of November to prepare the government-to-government meeting.
