President Reuven Rivlin this afternoon (Thursday) spoke with Israel Aerospace Industries CEO, Yossi Weiss, and congratulated him on the signing of an historic deal with India - the largest contract in the history of the aerospace industry in Israel.
The two spoke about the foundations for the deal which were laid out during President Rivlin's visit to India, and of the importance it played in strengthening the aerospace industry in Israel.
"Please pass on my congratulations to all who contributed to this important achievement. You have come such a long way to arrive at this point, it is truly exceptional," the President told him.
Mr. Weiss responded by thanking the President for his support and guidance for the representatives of the defense industries, who participated in the President's delegation on his state visit to India around four months ago. "It is a truly remarkable achievement. A wonderful gift for the upcoming festival for the aerospace industry in the State of Israel."
