Angara and Israel will expand cooperation
- Russian-Israeli relations are multifaceted, focused on further development in the spirit of strategic partnership. We are ready to expand bilateral cooperation, develop and strengthen contacts in all areas of economic, commercial and cultural activities. According to the preliminary results of the first half of 2016 of the year, the foreign trade turnover between Israel and the Angara region will be $ 4,5 million, - the governor stressed.

The working group plans to discuss cooperation on environmental issues, in particular, the use of Israeli technologies for water purification, the press service of the regional government said.

Sergey Levchenko noted that the Irkutsk Region and Israel have a number of promising areas of cooperation, primarily in the field of culture, in organizing remote communication between teachers and students, and conducting virtual master classes of educational institutions. These issues were tentatively considered in January of this year, when the First Secretary of the Embassy of the State of Israel in the Russian Federation, Mrs. Iris Zweig, visited Irkutsk on a working visit. Now work on these areas is proceeding in working order.

“This year we celebrate 25 years of restoring diplomatic relations between the two countries. Global relations between Russia and Israel are developing in a very positive direction. In addition, we intend to work on the development of cooperation with the Russian regions. In this regard, the Irkutsk region has a large partnership potential, - said Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the State of Israel in the Russian Federation Zvi Kheyfets.

Also at the meeting there was talk about the development of tourism exchange. Zvi Heifetz suggested considering the possibility of creating a charter flight between Israel and the Irkutsk region. Recall that from 2008 year, the visa regime between Israel and Russia was canceled bilaterally.
