Britain and Israel seek to enhance their technology, trade, and security relations


Britain and Israel will sign a seven-year agreement to strengthen their technology, trade, and security ties during a meeting between foreign ministers James Cleverly and Eli Cohen in London on Tuesday. Cleverly stated that the road map will enable both countries to fully utilize opportunities in areas of mutual interest, including tech, trade, and security.

Britain said discussions would also include the recent spike in violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestine Territories, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the threat posed by Iran.

The new deal includes around 20 million pounds ($24.50 million) of joint funding commitments on technology and innovation, the statement added.

Britain and Israel last year launched negotiations for a new trade agreement and said that deal was “a key priority for both governments.”
