Earlier in the day, the White House announced that the first virtual summit of I2U2 would be held next month when US President Joe Biden travels to the Middle East. The event will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and leaders of Israel and the UAE.

Each of these countries are technological hubs. Biotechnology is also prominent. Deepening trade and economic ties between these countries is in our interest when it comes to the relationship between Israel and the UAE. That is something we have sought to deepen, Price said. These two countries have deepened their relationship in recent years, including in the economic realm, he said.

India is a massive consumer market. It is a massive producer of high-tech and highly sought-after goods as well. So, there are a number of areas where these countries can work together, whether its technology, trade, climate, COVID-19, and potentially even security as well, the official said in response to a question.
