Israel and S. Korea Sign Pact


Israel and South Korea have signed a cooperation agreement in the fields of communication and science.

Communications Minister Shulamit Aloni was in South Korea for the signing and called the pact “an important breakthrough.”

She told Israel Radio that communications firms from South Korea and Israel will work together on projects in which the main financial backing will come from South Korea.

Aloni also said there were broad possibilities for scientific cooperation, given South Korean expertise in applied research, which complements theoretical research being done in Israel.
