      Ya'alon: No Cuts to Research and Development Budget


      Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, Thursday evening, "Over the years, I have thought, and still think, that we don't touch our research and development budgets and thereby enslave the future."

      Speaking at a meeting with the heads of the Forum of the Heads of Military Industries, Ya'alon added that his office will make a high priority out of "multi-layered defense, the ability to attack precisely from a distance and the cyber and intelligence world."
