Parízek in Israel: “Intensity of our bilateral relations brings concrete results”

5.9.2017 | Aktivity štátnych tajomníkov |

State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Lukáš Parízek is paying a working visit to the State of Israel. This visit is among a series of working visits involving political representatives of both countries. Official talks were launched at the Government Office of the State of Israel and involved Eytan Ben-David, Deputy Head of the National Security Council, with whom Parízek agreed on the continuation and deepening of cooperation in security and defense. "It’s necessary to address new threats and the fight against terrorism jointly, and especially with the countries that have long-term established systemic steps in this area, such as Israel,” highlighted Parízek.

The State Secretary was then received by Tzipi Hotovely, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.  Both agreed that the bilateral relations are excellent and their intensity is increasing, which attests to the interest shown by both countries to continue in concrete projects in the economy, science, research, innovations and other areas of joint interest. As they both said, it’s important that the intensity of the relations continue with the visit of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Slovakia. 

During a working lunch with Director General of Mashav (Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation) Gil Haskel, State Secretary Parízek also discussed the continuation of the joint trilateral development cooperation project.

At the end of his working day, Parízek opened a social event where representatives of Israeli business, start-up and science community met with trade and science members of the State Secretary´s delegation.  “We agreed to pursue efforts to move the mutual cooperation in science and innovations further and to attain tangible results,” stated Parízek. They also signed the agreements involving the largest Israeli university in Tel Aviv, University of Pavol Jozef Šafárik in Košice and Technical University in Košice.
