Nielsen Talks Counterterrorism, Public Safety Issues with Netanyahu

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday in Jerusalem during the inaugural International Homeland Security Forum.

Nielsen thanked Netanyahu for his government’s close cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on a range of counterterrorism and public safety issues. This includes aviation security, border security, cybersecurity, emergency management, law enforcement, and science and technology research and development.

In addition to these efforts, Nielsen also highlighted actions DHS has taken to counter threats. These efforts include countering the proliferation of nuclear, missile, and other technology; providing capacity building to our allies; and countering cyber threats. Further, Nielsen suggested that DHS and the government of Israel cooperate to advance implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2396, which provides greater international focus on measures to address returning and relocating foreign terrorist fighters and transnational terrorist groups.
