Israel’s Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev has revealed that he has personally passed on “vital information” to the British government to help the country tackle the coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the nation.

Speaking during an interview with Senior Reform Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner on Tuesday, Regev explained how Israeli ingenuity is at the forefront of the battle against Coronavirus.

“There are a number of research centres in Israel where they are close to a vaccine. Direction of travel is positive,” the Ambassador said.

“Some of the solutions that can help humanity are likely to come from Israel because we’re at the forefront of medical innovation. Some of our best minds are working on it”, he added.

Regev explained his efforts to help the UK, saying, “I as ambassador have been passing vital information onto the UK government that may prove helpful in finding a solution and saving lives.”

During the interview, Regev also explained how Israel was doing more to help Gaza tackle the crisis. Despite Hamas threatening Israel and neglecting their own people, Israel is more than willing to help their neighbours.

Israel is ranked one of the safest countries during this pandemic and is currently fairing far better than the UK in its handling of the Coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, it was always likely that Israel would be passing on this information to its allies.

The UK and Israel have a good relationship and the two countries enjoy one of the closest intelligence-sharing partnerships in the world. Israel has aided the UK in stopping numerous terror attacks on British soil and there is no doubt that the Jewish state is passing on its knowledge and expertise during this crisis.

Sadly, the British government likes to keep a tight lip on its close relationship with Israel for fear of a backlash from anti-Israel groups within the UK. There is far more collaboration between our nations than is made public.

Thankfully, the Israeli Ambassador to the UK was more than happy to share how Israel and the UK are in close partnership during this time.
