Angela Merkel is leaving for Israel today for a farewell visit as German Chancellor, during which she will meet with Israeli President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Merkel will step down as soon as a new government is formed in Germany after the September elections. Earlier this week he visited the Pope at the Vatican.

Merkel's trip to Israel was scheduled for late August, but was canceled due to the events in Afghanistan.

During her visit, she is scheduled to hold talks with Herzog and Bennett tomorrow, Sunday, and is also expected to meet with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

Among the topics on the agenda of its meetings are the Iranian nuclear program, relations with the Palestinians and bilateral relations.

Merkel is expected to meet with the Israeli cabinet tomorrow and lay a wreath at the Yad Bassem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem in the presence of Prime Minister Bennett this afternoon.

On Monday, Merkel is expected to hold a roundtable meeting in Jerusalem with representatives of the Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) before returning to Germany.

The new Israeli governing coalition consists of eight parties from the country's political spectrum and includes for the first time a party supported by the Arab minority. The coalition brought an end to the era of Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been Israel's prime minister since 2009.
