The foreign relations of Israel refers to diplomatic relations and international agreements between the State of Israel and other countries around the world. Israel joined the United Nations on May 11, 1949. Of the other 191 United Nations member states, Israel has diplomatic relations with 154.[1] Since 1967, diplomatic relations have been established with several Arab and Muslim countries. Israel maintains full diplomatic relations and open borders with neighbouring Egypt and Jordan since signing peace treaties with them in 1979 and 1994 respectively.

In addition to official diplomatic relations, Israel has been actively involved in providing humanitarian aid to developing nations and areas affected by natural catastrophes. Most recently, this has included direct volunteering by Israeli citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the ongoing support for Haiti.[2]
