PARIS - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued Monday with a series of meetings in Paris with various world leaders on the sidelines of the conference on climate change.

He took the opportunity to meet separately for the first time with the new prime ministers of Canada and Australia: Justin Trudeau and Malcolm Turnbull. Israel enjoys very close ties with both countries, and Netanyahu invited both men to the country for an official visit. Trudeau said he would like to return for a visit to Israel when the opportunity presents itself.

Netanyahu, who has previously spoken to Trudeau on the phone, said that Israel and Canada enjoy “terrific relations,” and that there is room to make them even stronger. Trudeau, according to the PMO, said that he expects the “close relationship” that Canada has had with Israel over the generations to continue in the future.

Earlier Netanyahu met with Japan's Premier, Shinzo Abe. Netanyahu's aides called that meeting “warm and friendly,”and said that the Japanese premier expressed an interest in furthering economic cooperation, as well as cooperation in the field of cyber security and counter-terrorism.

One Israeli diplomatic official said recently that Abe and Netanyahu have developed a very good working relationship, and that ties between the two countries have progressed further in the last two years than they had in the previous 65.
