Israel, Central European states say better EU-Israel ties needed

BUDAPEST - The leaders of Hungary and Israel on Wednesday called for improved relations between the EU and Israel, notably in security and technology, in an era defined by terrorism threats and migration.
Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Hungary's Viktor Orban both said relations should be reassessed as Israel was being criticized in Brussels while playing a stabilizing role in the Middle East, which benefited Europe.
The prime ministers of Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia - who also attended the meeting with Netanyahu - said they supported improved Israel-EU relations.
