The newspaper attributed the decision to an internal crisis that in Togo, the work of the national opposition in Togo and also pressure from Arab nations and the Palestinian Authorities on the African countries to cancel the conference.
Netanyahu was formally invited to the summit during a meeting in January with Togo's Foreign Minister Robert Dussey, and in August, Netanyahu hosted Togo's President Faure Gnassingbe for dinner at his Jerusalem residence.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry says an Israel-Africa summit scheduled next month in Togo has been postponed.
"The Arab League, along with the Organization for Islamic Cooperation, and other Arab and Islamic groups and parliaments of Arab countries, have adopted several initiatives seeking to counter and thwart that summit", the statement said. Instead, it has been pushed back "to a date to be agreed [upon]".
Israel's Foreign Ministry announced on Monday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming visit to Africa, for an Israel-Africa Summit in Togo in October, has been postponed.
"In the near future, Israel will hold consultations in Africa, both on the bilateral level as well as in regional gatherings and fora on the continent, in order to guarantee the full success of the summit", a statement from the organisers of the summit read.
Gnassingbé "also emphasized that this event aims to unite the efforts undertaken against the threat on peace and security, which undermines stability and slows down the development of the continent".
Netanyahu, now on a tour in Latin America, has recently been trying to emphasizing the improvement in relations between Israel and the African continent as proof that the occupying state is not isolated. Incidentally, he was elected to take over from Liberia's Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at a summit earlier this year.
"Israel believes that the African countries and Israel can only benefit from the continuation of practical cooperation between the two sides, and this in important areas such as water, agriculture, health and technology", the Foreign Ministry said.
