Israel counts on the V4

share on:

Hungary, Budapest – The heads of government of the Visegrád group met in Budapest with the Israeli Prime Minister. For Benjamin Netanyahu, the V4 is now an important interlocutor.

Enhanced cooperation

The V4+Israel meeting resulted in a number of cooperation projects. Student exchanges, research and development, or the field of investment and trade are concerned. In addition to these sectors, the leaders of the five countries agreed to establish a counter-terrorism working group.

European Union

Benjamin Netanyahu asked the V4 for their support to accelerate the Association Agreement with the European Union, denouncing in hot-mic remarks caught by reporters (a journalist was able to record several minutes of discussions between the five leaders) the conditions of the EU based on the “respect for human rights”. “The European Union is the only association of countries in the world that conditions the relations with Israel, that produces technology and every area, on political conditions. The only ones! Nobody does it,” Netanyahu said. Viktor Orbán did not miss the opportunity for humor: “Mr Netanyahu, the European Union is even more unique. The EU places conditions on the ones already inside the EU, not only the countries on the outside”.

Immigration and migratory crisis

Benjamin Natanyahu said he agrees with V4 leaders on the importance of improving the living and governance conditions of migrants’ countries of origin. The head of the Israeli government also stressed the importance of his country regarding the security and stability of the Middle East. Despite admitting to have bombed Hezbollah in Syria and elsewhere, Netanyahu assured the V4 leaders that his country is a potential mediator for the Arab world, knowing that the V4 develops its direct links with the Arab countries (as with Egypt and Libya) in order to stem the migratory phenomenon.

Energy

In full reorganization of its means regarding the access to and transportation of fossil fuel supply and in line with the principle of diversification of energy sources, V4 leaders acknowledged the Israeli Prime Minister’s proposals regarding Israeli natural gas sales opportunities.

Diplomacy

Israel is counting on the development and strengthening of direct links with the V4 and is counting on the V4 to defend its position within the European Union. Recognizing the importance of this new cooperation, the next V4+Israel meeting is scheduled to take place next year in Israel.

During the meeting, V4 leaders also addressed the issue of Palestine and together voiced in favor of the two-state solution.

  1. Thjis is rather disheartening for those who have liked to V4 even from America as a beacon of light and common sense (Govt for the people not foreigners) Help and working w/Israel on improving conditions in migrants homes countries? Who exactly do they think is destroying them in the 1st place? Then clearing them all out and sending them to the EU in furtherance of the Oded Yinon/Greater Israel Plan.
    Kalergi plan anyone? Barbara Lerner Specter and Jewish promotion of migration and European multiculturalism ring a bell? Thanks is truly garbage for the uninformed mases. Any work w/Israel on ”security” issues undermines the legitimacy of Visegrad. Many, many false flags like the Nice and Munich ”attacks” BOTH attacks caught on video by Richard Gutjahr (husband of Enot Wilf, former IDF Intel, AND current Knesset member) If anyone thinks all these are coincidences added to a bloodless lorry (after running over how many people?) and other inconsistencies, these are the work of Zionists to build up dissension between US+Europe w/Islamic countries to further armed conflict in the M.E. and the ISRAELI trained police state apparatus being constructed (or finishing completion in the case of UK, France, and the U.S.) across the Christian World.
    The state of Israel or more accurately New Canaan, New Khazaria should be boycotted NOT worked with. They take NO refugees only fuel the fire that creates them. I say BDS!!! Boycott Sanctions Divestment. Europe for Europeans and America for Americans not foreigners.
