Austria–Israel relations refers to the bilateral foreign relations between Austria and Israel.

History[edit]

Austria recognized Israel on March 5, 1949. Austria has an embassy in Tel Aviv and 3 honorary consulates (in Eilat, Haifa and Jerusalem).[1] Israel has an embassy in Vienna.[2] Both countries are full members of the Union for the Mediterranean. The Austrian Foreign Ministry lists the bilateral treaties with Israel (in German only).[3]

In 2000, after Joerg Haider's right-wing Freedom Party joined the coalition government, Israel recalled its ambassador. After talks in Jerusalem with the Austrian foreign minister, Benita Ferrero-Waldner in 2003, relations were restored.[4]
