Malawi and Israel established diplomatic relations with each other in July 1964 and has had continued relations since.

Banda era foreign policy[edit]

Malawi had relations with Israel since 1964. Many African countries suspended diplomatic relations in favor for relation with the Arab states where oil trade and financial aid would be beneficial to them.[1] Malawi under Kamuzu Banda's Foreign Policy, was one of only three Sub-Saharan African countries (the others being Lesotho and Swaziland) that continued to maintain full diplomatic relations with Israel after the Yom Kippur War in 1973.[1] Israel has assisted Malawi with a few social and economic development programs.

Post-Banda relations[edit]

Israel continues a relationship with Malawi on a non-residential basis.[2]
