Foreign Secretary James Cleverly and his Israeli counterpart Eli Cohen have signed a 2030 Roadmap for UK-Israeli Bilateral Relations aimed at boosting economic, security and technology ties.
Tweeting after concluding the roadmap Cleverly wrote: “Israel and the UK share a close and historic friendship. Today, Eli Cohen and I signed an agreement to deepen that relationship.
“On trade, tech and security, our two countries are taking full advantage of these opportunities.”
He had earlier stated:”The UK-Israel Bilateral Roadmap is a testament to the strength of our close and historic relationship.
“As we approach the 75th anniversary of UK-Israel relations, our Roadmap will allow us to fully take advantage of the opportunities in areas of mutual interest, including tech, trade and security.
“The UK and Israel also stand together, defiant in the face of the malign influence of Iran in the region, and against the wider scourge of antisemitism.”
The 2030 Roadmap for Israel-UK Bilateral Relations is an ambitious agreement that will ensure the partnership remains modern and continues to innovate to address shared challenges.
This year, we want to do more to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
We know that as we bless Israel this year, God will bless us, just as He promised in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Now is the time to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
