While the United States and Israel have long been close allies when it comes to defense, a new agreement between the nations shows their partnership reaches to other areas, as well. Israel Hayom's Shlomo Cesana reports on a new energy agreement between the U.S. and Israel:

The agreement expands areas of cooperation to include fuels and fuel alternatives, natural gas, smart grid technologies, desalination and water treatment, and the physical and cyber-defense of energy and water installations.

The deal was born from the understanding that developing advanced technologies in the fields of energy and water, for the purpose of creating secure methods of delivery while protecting the environment and making energy more efficient, was of utmost importance to both countries.

Steinitz, who accompanied Moniz on a tour of Masada in southern Israel on Monday, said: "The new agreement that was signed today is further proof of the countries' close relationship. I am convinced that cooperation in the energy field will grow in the coming years. I am thankful to Secretary Moniz for his friendship and cooperation.

"The Unites States is Israel's greatest friend, and we appreciate this friendship."
