Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Tuesday with Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian.

The two met to discuss relations between Armenia and Israel, the possibilities for strengthening them, as well as increasing cooperation in the technology, agriculture and and cybersecurity industries. They also spoke about Iran's growing influence in the region and its plans to increase its military presence in the region.

In August, it was rumored that Israel had been commissioned by Azerbaijan to carry out a live demonstration against an Armenian military position. Weeks later, the export of drones was frozen. Azerbaijan is a ''significant customer'' of Israeli drones; the country borders Armenia, and the two have technically been at war for nearly 30 years.

Israel has not officially recognized the Armenian genocide, but Yesh Atid Chairman announced in July his support for doing so.
