SIBAT sees in this cooperation an important strategic opportunity that will contribute to strengthen the two nations, both economically and defense-wise."

He continued, "In an era when defense budgets around the world are becoming more focused on economics, affecting defense development as well as production, this technological cooperation can be seen as a professional, high quality, fast and powerful response to critical security needs, for today and for the future. Many of the products being offered by Israeli companies at LAAD are combat-proven, and provide an excellent option for cooperation and rapid integration that will bring a strong and appropriate response to this region.
