The UAE and Israel have discussed cooperation opportunities in the areas of food and water security.

That's according to national news Agency WAM, which clarified that the UAE Minister of State for Food and Water Security, Mariam Al Mheiri, and Israel's Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alon Schuster, held a virtual meeting last Friday.

The two sides also highlighted the great opportunities lying ahead for both countries as a result of the Peace Accord.

Al Mheiri and Schuster pledged to collaborate in areas related to food and water security, such as R&D, aquaculture, Agritech, and other fields.

A direct channel will now open for both ministries to work together and lay-out a cooperation programme.
