Netanyahu targets close commercial ties between Israel and China

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told China's premier that he wants to boost the two countries' co-operation over advanced technology.

Mr Netanyahu is leading a large business delegation to promote commercial ties between Israel and the Asian giant.

He said before a meeting with Chinese premier Li Keqiang in Beijing that Israel and China could explore "many ways of technological co-operation, which I think sees the future".

He also said he would like to discuss the "great convulsion in the world", including in the Middle East.

He said: "I believe this is a marriage made in heaven."
