Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met on Thursday morning with British Prime Minister David Cameron as part of an official state visit to the United Kingdom. 

"I look forward to discussing with you everything you mentioned – three specific areas," Netanyahu told Cameron at the start of the meeting.

"First security," the Israeli Prime Minister noted. "The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam: The militant Sunnis led by ISIS and the militant Shiites led by Iran." 

"And I believe that we can cooperate in practical ways to roll back the tide of militant Islam both in the Middle East and in Africa altogether."

"Secondly, and no less important, peace," Netanyahu continued. 

"I want to say here in 10 Downing Street, and reaffirm again that I am ready to resume direct negotiations with the Palestinians with no conditions whatsoever to enter negotiations, and I'm willing to do so immediately," the Prime Minister vowed. 

"The third point is technology – the future belongs to those who innovate," Netanyahu concluded. 

"Britain and Israel are two great centers of technology. Israel is a global hub of innovation, especially in cyber security. And I think that if we pull our resources together we can offer a better future and great prosperity."
