Michael Malchieli, the Co-Chair of the Group for Interparliamentary Relations of the Knesset of Israel with the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and representatives of the Embassy of Israel, Knesset Member Moshe Arbel and Moshe Reuven Asman, the Chief rabbi of Ukraine, made a working visit to International European University.
During the meeting, participants signed an agreement on joint activities in different areas.
The agreement is aimed at regulating the current position between the University and partners, approving mutual cooperation conditions in the improvement of the educational activities, establishing communications between Israel and Ukraine to exchange cultural and training experience.
“Thank you for inviting me and showing your university. It seems to me that I’ve joined the political activity mistakenly. I’ve been always dreaming about education rather than politics, but the Supreme Being has brought me to the political sector. I don’t regret and try to do good deeds, but I’m extremely happy to get an opportunity to focus on education.
To my mind, your new education institution, which has succeeded within a short time, is similar to a share that initially costs little but suddenly raises and becomes quite expensive and valuable. I believe that, together with such a unique and professional team, we’ll be able to implement a lot of great things. Meanwhile, I would like to invite you to our Ministry of Education. I will personally organize this meeting. I’m sure that this collaborative work will enhance our friendship,” Mr. Malchieli said.
At the grand meeting, Michael Malchieli received the acknowledgement for assistance in higher education development, training of students with an active life attitude and fruitful cooperation with the University.
Joint efforts of the parties will encourage the efficient growth of cultural and scientific relations between Ukraine and Israel within the Program of cooperation in education, culture, youth and sports between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the State of Israel in 2019-2022.
