Albanian Premier: Meetings on Cybersecurity in Israel

JERUSALEM (HPD) — Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama arrived in Israel on Sunday for an official visit to meet officials in charge of cybersecurity, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said.

The three-day visit comes after Albania severed diplomatic ties with Iran in July due to a cyberattack against Albanian government websites and services.

After the rupture of relations, came a second cyberattack by the same Iranian actor against the computer system that registers border entries and exits in Albania, which caused delays for travelers.

Israel and Iran are archenemies and have been waging a clandestine war for more than a decade, both in the region and in cyberspace.

The Israeli ministry said Rama will meet with the National Cyber ​​Security Agency. He did not give more details.

The ministry added that Rama will meet with Prime Minister Yair Lapid, President Isaac Herzog and other officials.
