Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Panasonic corporate leaders Monday in Tokyo. He 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."
Netanyahu also met with members of the Israel Japan Parliamentary Friendship League, saying, "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."
