Ministers Katz and Chikli agreed to promote a joint governmental decision for the Prime Minister's Office, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs aimed at strengthening the status of the State of Israel in the world and explaining its various actions.

In addition, the ministers agreed on the creation of a variety of campaigns against entities, organizations and individuals who perpetrate antisemitism, and on dedicated campaigns to strengthen the position of the State of Israel through, among other means, deepening the support of civil society.

We will strive to work hard in cooperation with the amazing people who have been fighting for Israel on social networks since 7 October."

Diaspora and Combating Antisemitism Minister Amichai Chikli said: "The time has come to move from defense to offense, and to ensure that the perpetrators of antisemitism are identified and treated appropriately."
