Guinea–Israel relations refers to the current and historical relationship between Guinea and Israel.

History[edit]

Israel had diplomatic relations with the colonial French Guinea until 1958, when Guinea became independent.[1] In 1967, Guinea cut ties with Israel.[2] Diplomatic relations were re-established in July 2016.[1]

Trade relations[edit]
