Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday visited Israel Aerospace Industries. IAI Chairman of the Board Harel Locker, IAI President and CEO Nimrod Sheffer and other senior officials presented the Prime Minister with ways to both strengthen IAI and benefit the national security of the State of Israel. Netanyahu also toured an exhibition of technological means and capabilities under development at IAI.

“There is an accumulation of very talented minds and people here who are developing the cutting-edge of the defense of the State of Israel, from micro-satellites that we will launch into space to missiles, only part of which you see here behind me,” said the Prime Minister. “Space is a huge sphere that the State of Israel is entering.

“They are developing offensive missiles here that can reach anywhere in the area and any target. This is the offensive power of the State of Israel which is very important for us in all sectors. They are developing weapons systems here with special capabilities that no other country has.”

 

In response to a question about the aircraft deal with Croatia, Netanyahu said the issue “is being conducted between the countries. I have dealt with this personally. At the moment it is too early to be clearer. We are working on it.”

IAI Chairman Locker told Netanyahu, “You have seen and heard here a little of our abilities. This is the realization of the Jewish genius to its fullest. IAI knows how to reach anywhere for the benefit of the people of Israel. Decide and we will go anywhere we like. The sky is not the limit.”
