As Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to visit Israel starting July 4, his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu has said cyber security is one of the key areas of cooperation to be discussed during Modi’s visit.
"Once it was a disadvantage to say that you are from Israel. Today when you talk about cyber or advanced technology, it is an advantage to say we are an Israeli company. The whole world wants us. The whole world is coming here," Netanyahu said at the Cyber Week 2017 conference in Tel Aviv University.
"For example, there is going to be a visit of Prime Minister of India, one of the most important prime minister's of the world, with the third largest economy in the world growing very fast. He wants close cooperation with Israel in many fields -- water, agriculture, health and also in cyber. And he has a good reason to do so," PTI quoted the Israeli PM as saying.
