The signing of agreements with Austria cancelled because of the refusal of the Austrians to come to Jerusalem

The Minister of education and science of the Republic of Austria Reinhold Mitterlehner was forced to cancel an official visit to Israel, during which it was planned to sign several bilateral agreements.

The reason for the cancellation of the visit was the refusal of the Minister of science and technology of Israel Ophir of Acunia to satisfy the requirement of Mitterlehner to hold the signing ceremony in tel Aviv and not in Jerusalem.

The Austrian Minister was not willing that the ceremony was held in the offices of the Ministry of science, as they are in that part of Jerusalem, which is the so-called «green line».

«With all due respect to the Austrian Minister, Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and it will not be divided by Austria,» said Akunis.
