Israeli leader urges stability and peace

China | 21 Mar 2017

Visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met his Chinese counterpart yesterday and called for efforts to promote global stability, amid political turmoil back home.

There is "great deal of convulsion in the world," Netanyahu told Li Keqiang before their meeting, urging the two countries to advance security, peace, stability and prosperity.

The meeting was part of a three-day trip by the Israeli leader marking 25 years of diplomatic relations. He is expected to meet President Xi Jinping today.

Netanyahu was accompanied by 90 business people -- the largest Israeli business delegation to visit China.

They met executives from some of China's largest corporations, including internet giants Baidu and Alibaba, said a statement from the Israeli prime minister's office.

Trade between China and Israel has flourished since diplomatic ties were established in 1992.

China's total investment in Israel exceeds six billion dollars, and Israeli- designed technologies are used across the world's second-largest economy.
