The Jewish state wants to share its knowledge and technology with the world, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday at an event held at the United Nations headquarters in New York City which focused on Israeli innovation in Africa and developing countries on other continents.

Addressing the dozens of foreign officials in attendance, Netanyahu said, “We want you to benefit from the fruits of the tree of knowledge we have planted…We are your partners.”

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, who served as the event’s co-host with Netanyahu, said, “Today we are focusing on Israel’s relationship with so many of our friends in the developing world. The strengthening of our ties with Africa in particular can be viewed as an example of the endless potential of these relationships. As the prime minister said during his historic visit to Africa two months ago, Israel has come back to Africa and Africa has come back to Israel.”
