Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Monday, 11 May 2014), in Tokyo, met with members of the Israel Japan Parliamentary Friendship League led by MP Gen Nakatani.

At the start of the meeting Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "There is a common bond between us: We’re both democratic, progress, technological societies. You face North Korea, which is a rogue regime with nuclear weapons. We face the possibility of Iran, which is a rogue regime that wants to have nuclear weapons. They’re cooperating between them, and we should cooperate between us, and I want to commend you for keeping the torch of Israeli-Japanese friendship alive and now it’s growing stronger. And it will grow stronger with this visit. I’m confident of that."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also met with Panasonic corporate leaders including Chairman of the Board Shusaku Nagae, Tokyo Center Director Yoshiko Hamazaki, Marketing and Sales Manager Hiroki Miyaji and International Relations Director Genichiro Shimada.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "There is one area that transcends everything and affects everything and this is the question of cyber security. All the systems that I saw here are computerized systems; they’re all vulnerable. Cyber security is a growing need and a central need for your businesses. This is something Israel is developing by leaps and bounds on a global scale and we are open to participation not only with governments, but also with companies. And indeed the biggest companies in the world in this field and related fields are now coming to Israel to invest in cyber security and we invite you to do the same.
