"Under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, there has been a flowering of Israel’s diplomacy around the world. Starting with the Far East, Israel has made significant progress in negotiating free trade agreements with South Korea, China, Japan and India. For the first time, the prime minister of Singapore visited Israel. This kind of activity did not occur in the past."
Gold also praised Netanyahu's outreach in the Arab world, Africa, and Latin America, saying that Israel is engaged in unprecedented cooperation or launching unprecedented initiatives with the nations in those regions."
