PARIS — European sources told Al-Monitor on Friday that Israel’s President Isaac Herzog will travel to Brussels on Jan. 25 for a two-day visit. It will be the first Israeli official visit to the European Union headquarters since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took office, and comes at a time of uncertainty in the relationship.
Herzog is set to address the European Parliament on Jan. 26, marking the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which officially falls on Jan. 27. Herzog will meet with heads of the European Commission and other senior European officials. The president is also expected to meet with the leadership of the Belgian Jewish community.
