Prime Minister Joseph Muscat of Malta is visiting Israel on Tuesday. Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu welcomed him stating, "it demonstrates clearly how dramatically our bilateral relationship has grown over the past decade. Malta has historic roots in the Mediterranean. We do too. And we've had the opportunity to chart a common future together by the ministers and economic leaders that are here. I think there are many areas we can think of working together in: science, technology, environmental protection, green energy, agriculture and much more," Netanyahu said.
