JERUSALEM (Armenpress) — US reality star Kim Kardashian and her husband, rapper Kanye West, met for a meal with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Monday during their whirlwind visit to the region.
“We raised a toast to Jerusalem,” Barakat recounted of his encounter with the celebrities at a local restaurant.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the mayor added that during the meeting, he asked the Hollywood-based crew “to be ambassadors of Jerusalem and to spread the message around the world that Jerusalem is open and everyone is wanted here.”
In a quick visit to Jerusalem, the famous couple had their toddler daughter, North West, baptized at a 12th century Armenian church in the old walled city.
Dozens of fans mobbed an SUV that took the couple, their 22-month-old child and Kardashian’s sister Khloe to the church, the girl and her father decked out in white and Kardashian in a long crinkle pleated beige and peach colored outfit.
The celebrities flew to Israel after a five-day visit to Armenia, homeland of Kardashian’s ancestors, where on Friday she placed flowers in Yerevan at a memorial to the Armenian Genocide victims.
