Achievements and Challenges in Development of Israel

Achievements and Challenges in Development of Israel Achievements and Challenges in Development of Israel

 
Institute of Oriental Studies, 200th Anniversary Conference

Israel has gone far in the military, socio-economic, and cultural development in the past 70 years.

Israel occupies a unique position on the political map of the Middle East. The Jewish state found itself in the status of a country-isolate for a long time. In the recent years, largely due to changes in the region-wide conjuncture (the need for joint opposition to the nuclear and terrorist threat, as well as the solution of a number of socio-economic problems - lack of water, search for new sources of energy, new regional political trends) the country managed to get rid of the outcast status. Israel interwines increasingly in the Middle East changing architectonics. These processes were of great interest to the Russian and foreign researchers.

The significant positive development of the Russian-Israeli relations should be noted, when the Jewish state is being a key partner and US ally in the Middle East.
