Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tel Aviv Israel is enjoying a greater level of cooperation today with the Arab world than it has ever had in its history.
At a ceremony in the Foreign Ministry on Wednesday, Netanyahu said the cooperation today with countries in the Arab world is actually greater than it was when the Zionist entity signed agreements with Egypt and Jordan.
In practice, he said, there is cooperation in “different ways” and “at different levels,” though it is not public. And even though it is not public, “it is much larger than any other period in Israel’s history. It’s a huge change.”
Netanyahu, who also serves as foreign minister said that Tel Aviv today is “in a different place” than before. He said that the alliance with the United States is “stronger than ever” and that – in addition – there are strong ties with Europe, with openings being made in eastern Europe.
“There are great breakthroughs on all the continents; our return to Africa and the expansion of our technical assistance there is leading to a great deal of interest on the continent,” he said.
The Israeli PM added that important breakthroughs were made this past year in Asia as well – China, India and Japan – as well as with the Muslim countries there, especially Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, which he visited in December.
Netanyahu also praised a “great change” with Russia, which he said was of great importance in terms of connecting economic and cultural interests.
Referring to his upcoming trip to Argentina, Colombia and Mexico, before going to the UN General Assembly in New York, Netanyahu said that Latin America was a “huge market in a large bloc of important countries.”
