KOLKATA (TIP): India and Israel have signed a number of agreements on cooperation in legal assistance and public and homeland security. The pacts are part of the ongoing efforts by both countries in the war against terror and are based on the shared determination to protect citizens, assets and interests.
“We believe that these agreements are another important platform for the cooperation between our countries and we would like to express our appreciation for the leadership of the ministry of home affairs in this regard,” Israel ambassador in India Alon Ushpiz said. Israel’s minister of public security Yitzhak Aharonovich said: “Today is an important day.
These agreements that were signed are a fine example of our substantial and equal partnership with India. The various types and forms of threats the two countries face make this cooperation an indispensable one. Terror is a global threat and only through cooperation between allies can peace-seeking countries overcome such threats.”
