“Our roadmap will allow us to fully capitalize on opportunities in areas of mutual interest such as technology, trade and security,” Cleverley said in a statement prior to the visit.
The UK said discussions would also include the recent surge in violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and threats from Iran.
The new deal includes co-financing commitments of around £20m ($24.5m) in technology and innovation, the statement added.
The UK and Israel began negotiating a new trade deal last year and said the deal was an “important priority for both governments”.
