JERUSALEM, June 7. /TASS/. Israel’s progress in the sphere of innovations and technologies has been achieved thanks to the citizens coming from the former Soviet Union, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman ahead of his visit to Moscow marking 25 years since the two countries restored diplomatic relations.
"We achieved success in all areas, all without exception. Progress can be reached in everything. I think that this fulfilled potential is the result of that Israel is a country of innovations and technologies. To a large extent, our unprecedented rise in this area occurred thanks to our brothers and sisters, the natives of the former USSR countries, thanks to the Russian-speaking Israelis who have joined the scientific circles and the sphere of technologies eagerly and energetically," Netanyahu stressed.
The Israeli prime minister said the fact that "in this area we have such successful people who speak Russian and talk about Russia with great sympathy can result in cooperation both at the level of organizations and at a state level, a far greater one than we have today."
