National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz met with United States Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz this week in Washington, D.C., where the two officials opened a dialogue focusing on increasing cooperation in the sector between the two countries.

Among the specific focal areas of such collaboration will be natural gas, water, protection from cyber attacks and civilian nuclear energy, an Energy Ministry statement said.
