Israel wants to use its cutting-edge agricultural technology to improve food production -- and win friends -- across Africa, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday.Visiting Israel's crop-themed pavilion at the World Expo in Milan, Netanyahu said cooperation with Italy in Africa would be top of his agenda at talks with his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi in Florence on Saturday.The Israeli premier, who is on his first major overseas trip since being re-elected in June, said Israel's pioneering role in areas such as drip-irrigation, water recycling and desalination made it perfectly equipped to help bolster food security in Africa and elsewhere.Netanyahu was speaking in front of a giant "vertical field" of wheat, rice and corn that has helped to make Israel's pavilion one of the top draws at the six-month long world fair.
