The Ambassador of Israel designated to Sierra Leone and based in Senegal, Gideon Behar, on Tuesday 12th May 2009 paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Defense Staff of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF), Major General Alfred Nelson Williams at his Tower Hill office in Freetown.

Receiving the envoy and entourage, the Chief of Defense Staff welcomed the delegation to Sierra Leone and thanked the Israeli Government for the tremendous assistance rendered to Sierra Leone over the years. The Chief of Defense Staff cited the building of the House of Parliament at Tower Hill and some other assistance rendered to the Government of Sierra Leone as special things to note.

The Chief of Defense Staff reiterated that the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces is not only there to defend the country from external aggression but also to feed the people through agriculture.

On his part, Ambassador Gideon Bahar thanked the Chief of Defense Staff for the warm reception. He promised the CDF that he would ensure that the already built relationship between the Government and people of Sierra Leone and that of the Government and people of Israel continue to grow from strength to strength.

The Ambassador disclosed that the purpose of his visit is to help the agricultural sector in Sierra Leone.

At the end of the meeting, the envoy offered two scholarships for personnel of the RSLAF to study agriculture in Senegal.
