Israel maintains no diplomatic relations with world's most populous country

A senior official from Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, is currently on a secret visit to Israel, a source revealed to i24NEWS

Diplomatic relations between Israel and Indonesia are non-existent. 

At the beginning of 2022, a high-ranking Israeli Foreign Ministry official confirmed during a briefing that Israel and Indonesia were working behind the scenes toward normalizing relations, with the United States acting as a mediator.

Last August, an Israeli delegation of investors, technology, and trade specialists visited Indonesia. The volume of direct and indirect trade between Israel and Indonesia reaches approximately $500 million per year.
