PM Strikes Digital Health Care Deal in Davos
Among those Netanyahu is slated to meet include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, Presidents of Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Switzerland, as well as, the Prime Ministers of Belgium, Canada and Netherlands.
While news about Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at Davos on Wednesday was about Iran and the Palestinians, Thursday offered some concrete economic takeaways.
On Wednesday, Netanyahu impressed upon Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel Israel's ongoing objections to the JCPOA - the nuclear deal with Iran agreed to in July 2015 that the USA now opposes, although it has yet to withdraw entirely from the agreement.
The deal was discussed between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković during their meeting in Davos on Thursday.
The Croatian website index.hr reported this on Friday, citing Israeli outlets the Jerusalem Post and the Times of Israel.
Netanyahu and Putin have held several other bilateral meetings during the past two years to discuss regional issues, and to help maintain a protocol that prevents friction between their nations' militaries in Syria.
He said the countries want Israel mostly for security and protection from Islamic terrorism due to its expertise in intelligence and security systems, as also for securing the future generations as Israel excels in technology and innovations.
He added that Merkel has "proven this commitment in the past at various opportunities", and that he is "satisfied that our positions have been well-understood".
