Lieberman as Foreign Minister wants Strategic Partnership with Russia

leave a comment »

There are a million Russians in Israel. They all have connections in Russia. Who knows what influence they have?

They have become Israel’s 3rd largest party. And how do mavericks or Fascists rise? Forgetting the politics of Lieberman for a moment, it seems he knows how to maneuver, and an alliance with Russia would be timely. The American friendship is waning, and the likes of AIPAC will hasten the separation.

Will Leiberman fill the gap? it will be a pirouette, coz I can’t imagine Russia abandoning Iran, Syria or Russia’s closer ties with Turkey.

“I’ve been saying all along that relations between Israel and Russia must rise to a level of strategic partnership. This is even more relevant today, then previously,” Lieberman said.

“However paradoxical it may seem, the global economic crisis gives Israel new opportunities to reach the Russian market, after many of the Western companies abandoned it,” the Israeli politician said.

Lieberman, who co-chaired the Russian-Israeli intergovernmental commission for trade and economic cooperation in 2003-04, said that, the two countries have accomplished “a real breakthrough” in this area, but the potential is far from being exhausted.

The same refers to military-technical cooperation between Israel and Russia, he said.

“Israel has quite a few things to offer Russia in this sector – from the electronic stuffing for fighter jets to drones,” Lieberman said.
