Netanyahu to address cybersecurity cooperation at meeting with Trump

Bilateral cooperation on cybersecurity is among several topics on the agenda for Netanyahu’s upcoming with Trump.

Addressing this year’s Cyber Security Conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he plans to discuss the issue of bilateral cooperation on cybersecurity during his upcoming meeting with US President Donald Trump.

“What you see today is going to get a lot worse in the future if we don’t band together,” Netanyahu stated. “That is why I intend to raise the subject and discuss the subject of cooperation in cybersecurity in my upcoming visit in Washington with President Trump.”

The prime minister said he will also touch upon several other issues during the meeting, including the possibility of renewing sanctions against Iran after a reported ballistic missile test as well as Israel’s policy with regards to Judea and Samaria.

Netanyahu is also expected to discuss Trump’s previously stated plan to move the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which  is still “under active consideration,” according to Trump’s cybersecurity adviser, Rudy Giuliani.
