“Planting trees is a personal hobby of mine, and a symbol of the excellent relationship between our two countries,” said Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvilli at a ceremony in Jerusalem’s Forest of Nations, where he planted an olive tree. In doing so he joined the esteemed company of numerous leaders, presidents and prime ministers from all over the world who have planted trees there before him as a gesture of friendship towards Israel and a symbol of peace. KKL


“We would like to continue to foster the relationship between the two countries,” said Prime Minister Ivanishvilli after the ceremony. “I have no doubt that we can benefit greatly from Israel’s knowledge in a number of areas in which KKL-JNF is active, such as, for example, agricultural development and ecology. Israel is a leader in these areas, and, as a country on very friendly terms with yours, I hope that we can learn from the expertise you have acquired and implement in Georgia the methods that you have developed.”
