Israel–Netherlands relations are foreign relations between Israel and the Netherlands. In 1947, the Netherlands voted in favor of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine. Both countries established diplomatic relation in 1949.[1] Until Israel and the Soviet Union reestablished diplomatic relations (January 3, 1991), the Dutch embassy represented Israel in the Soviet Union.[2]

The Embassy of Israel in the Netherlands is located in this building in The Hague. (May 2014)

Israel has an embassy in The Hague.[3] The Netherlands has an embassy in Ramat Gan, an information office in Jerusalem and two honorary consulates in Eilat and Haifa.[4] Both countries are full members of the Union for the Mediterranean.
