Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on world leaders to “pool” scientific and economic efforts to defeat the COVID-19 threat.
“We all have research and scientific capabilities. We all have technological capabilities. We have to develop this capacity. We cannot be at the mercy of market forces,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a video conference with other world leaders on Monday.
Netanyahu was joined by host and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, and Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis.
“I think that in order to get to a reasonable economic and scientific scale, we should seriously look at pooling together our efforts. We must join forces and seriously begin to talk about both scientific research and production and supply, first to our respective countries and then to everyone else. Let’s already plan for the years ahead,” Netanyahu added.
