Yuval Steinitz

Yuval Steinitz, Israeli Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy, and Water, joins Aaron to talk about the Leviathan deep water oil & gas reservoir that was recently discovered in Israeli offshore waters. They explore what this vast amount of natural resources — which may be the greatest and most unexpected natural resource discovery in the history of the small nation — means for Israeli energy security and what could be a relatively huge export market opportunity. They also discuss the development and safety concerns related to nuclear energy. Minister Steinitz explains the Israeli focus on Cyber Security and the development of their own technologies to increase the safety of the Israeli people. Finally, they examine the current state of affairs regarding the Palestinian and Israeli states and the difficulty of finding solutions that need to be found if any progress is to occur in the peace process.
