Amnon Barzilai

France announced that it supports Israel's joining the European Union's Space Agency (ESA) as an associate member - this is what the director of the French Space Agency, Alain Ben Shoshan, said yesterday to the Minister of Science, Culture and Sports, Matan Vilnai, and the Director of the Israel Space Agency, Avi Har Even, who were visiting the Salon The aerial at La Bourgeois in Paris. Ben Shoshan also serves as chairman of the board of directors of the European Union Space Agency.

France's support for Israel joining the European Union's space agency opens up new possibilities for the Israeli space industry. The offer to Israel is an expression of the European recognition of the technologies developed in Israel mainly in the field of miniaturized satellites. The main problem with Israel's annexation is the need for a decision to be accepted unanimously by all 15 member states of the European Union.
