President of Costa Rica: We will positively consider returning the embassy to Jerusalem Israel today


Rodrigo Chavez to Foreign Minister Eli Cohen at the meeting held at the World Economic Conference in Davos: We will consider moving the embassy from Ramat Gan to the capital • Cohen invited Chavez to visit Israel

Costa Rica will positively examine the possibility of moving its embassy from Ramat Gan to Jerusalem, the country's president, Rodrigo Chavez, told the Israeli foreign minister today (Wednesday), at a meeting they held as part of the World Economic Conference in Davos.

Costa Rica was one of the only countries in the world whose embassy was in Jerusalem, until in 2006 it moved to Ramat Gan.

Now, San Jose will consider returning the embassy to the capital of Israel.

Cohen thanked the president for Costa Rica's vote against the Palestinian resolution on the issue of the High Court in The Hague and invited Foreign Minister Andre to visit the country soon.

In the meetings that Cohen had with a series of colleagues from around the world, he urged them to define Iran's Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization.

These include, among others, the foreign ministers of Sweden, the Netherlands, Austria, Albania, Lithuania, and more.

Representatives of a part of the country replied that they would look into the issue positively. 

Following the decision of the European Parliament to call on the Union and its members to add the "Revolutionary Guards" to the Union's list of terrorist organizations, Cohen said that "Iran is a terrorist state that exports terrorism to the Middle East, Europe and the entire world. The inclusion of the Revolutionary Guards, the world's largest terrorist organization, on the European Union's list of terrorist organizations , will be an important step in the fight against the Iranian regime."

The decision passed with an overwhelming majority of 598 in favor, compared to 9 against.

Tomorrow, the European Parliament is expected to pass another resolution dealing with Iran, including a call to declare the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organization.
