New York Gov. Cuomo to make 3rd trip to Israel this week
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans on making his third trip to Israel since taking office.
The Democrat is leaving Wednesday for a trip aimed at strengthening economic ties and showing solidarity. Cuomo will return Friday.
Cuomo told public radio station WAMC he wants to send a message after a “rash” of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States, such as synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh and near San Diego.
Cuomo said he intends to speak to Israeli software developers to see if they would be interested in helping the Metropolitan Transportation Authority with its train navigation system. He also intends to speak to businesses involved in drone technology.
