The son of the Western-backed Iranian monarch deposed by the Islamic Revolution announced plans Sunday to visit Israel this week in an effort to restore the “ancient bond” between the nations.

A statement posted by Reza Pahlavi on his Twitter account said the trip will also focus on Israeli water technology and Holocaust commemoration. Israel is set to mark Holocaust Memorial Day starting Monday evening.
