A SE­NIOR aide to Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ehud Olmert met of­fi­cials at 10 Down­ing Street in Lon­don on Mon­day.

Shalom Lip­ner, Mr Olmert’s spe­cial co-or­di­na­tor of pub­lic diplo­macy, was there as a guest of the Jewish Lead­er­ship Coun­cil.

Jeremy New­mark, the JLC chief ex­ec­u­tive, who at­tended the Down­ing Street meet­ing along with Karen Pol­lock, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Holo­caust Ed­u­ca­tion Trust, said: “The pri­mary pur­pose of his visit was to at­tend a meet­ing of the JLC new lead­er­ship net­work and to meet lead­ing mem­bers of the pro-Is­rael com­mu­nity.

“We took the op­por­tu­nity of this visit to in­tro­duce him to key par­lia­men­tar­i­ans, of­fi­cials and pol­icy ad­vis­ers with whom the com­mu­nity is in reg­u­lar con­tact.”

The net­work of around 30 “up-and­com­ing” lead­ers was set up by the JLC ear­lier this year.
