Bibi Netanyahu touched on the following two points in his weekly cabinet address:

  • The Amona agreement (video was recorded before the agreement was accepted by the community)
  • His trip to Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan last week

On the second point, the Prime Minister points out that both Islamic countries desire a real relationship with Israel and admire the Jewish people. The visits were breakthroughs in building serious partnerships emerging countries that have real economic potential and a desire to reach out as representatives of an emerging moderate Islam originating in central Asia.
