Israeli company in industrial deal with sworn enemy Iran: report

JERUSALEM, March 21 (AFP) - An Israeli firm signed contracts for the sale of industrial material to arch-foe Iran at an international trade fair in Germany last week, a newspaper here reported on Sunday.

Amnon Shoham, managing director of the Israeli company Gamal, said the deals were signed at the Israeli pavillion at the Cologne fair, adding that the Iranians believed Tehran would soon permit direct trade with the Jewish state.

Gamal, a company from the Sarid kibbutz, has agreed to provide industrial equipment for cutting wood, metal and rock to three large Iranian companies via a third company in Greece.

A senior Iranian official on Friday ruled out relations with either the United States or Israel, saying they did not uphold the principle of "mutual respect" among nations.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left for Moscow Sunday hoping to convince his Russian counterpart to stop providing nuclear and missile technology to Iran, a sworn enemy since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Netanyahu considers Iran's program to develop long-range ballistic missiles and non-conventional warheads the main strategic threat facing Israel.
