Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, on Monday hosted Janet Museveni, the wife of the Ugandan President, at the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem on Monday.

The meeting was also attended by Yahel Vilan, former Israeli ambassador to Uganda and Kenya.

Netanyahu told Museveni at the start of the meeting, "Welcome to Jerusalem, we are happy to host you here."

Monday’s meeting marks the second time that Netanyahu and Museveni have met. Their first meeting took place during the Prime Minister's visit to Uganda in July 2016.

The Prime Minister’s Office said Monday’s meeting was “warm and friendly. The two wives discussed the relations between the countries. The wife of the President of Uganda thanked the Prime Minister for his visit to Africa about a year ago and said that the joint projects of MASHAV, which promote training in Uganda in the fields of education, technology and health, are very helpful."

Sara Netanyahu showed Museveni some archaeological artifacts and said that no one can say that the Jews are guests in the Land of Israel.

Museveni thanked Netanyahu for the hospitality and invited her to meet again in New York at the upcoming UN General Assembly. She also invited the Prime Minister and his wife to visit Uganda again.
