India, Israel Ink $40 Million Innovation Initiative

(Ilan Evyatar/TPS) Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi agreed Wednesday to take steps to counter radicalism, extremism and cyber-terrorism, and also signed a $40 million agreement to found a bilateral technology fund.

“We are being challenged by forces of terror that seek to undermine our world, our countries, the peace and stability of our common civilization and we have agreed to cooperate in this area,” Netanyahu said.

“India has suffered first hand the violence and hatred spread by terror, and so has Israel,” Modi said. “Prime Minister Netanyahu and I agreed to do much more together to protect our strategic interests and also cooperate to combat growing radicalization and terrorism, including in cyberspace.”

Netanyahu described the gesture as “an expression of our commitment to fight the bad and work for the good.”

Meanwhile, Israel and India signed seven agreements—three on space, two on water, one on innovation and one on Mashav, the Agency for International Development Cooperation, which will set up further centers of agricultural excellence in India.

“Israel is among the leading nations in the field of water innovation and agricultural technologies,” said Modi. “Together, our scientists and researchers will develop, build and implement mutually beneficial solutions in the field.”
