German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser plans to travel to Israel next week to hold talks on public security, cybersecurity and combating antisemitism, her ministry announced on Friday.

On her three-day trip starting Monday, she will sign a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in police training, it said.

The Social Democrat (SPD) politician is scheduled to meet Israel's Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev on Tuesday. The two minsters are expected to discuss, the statement said, the deepening of bilateral cooperation in the security sector, expending cooperation around deradicalization, as well as in cybercrime investigations.

She will then hold talks with Deputy Defense Minister Alon Schuster. The two are expected to discuss the combating of terrorist funding and cooperation in civil protection.

The minister also plans to lay a wreath at Yad Vashem in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.

On Wednesday morning, the minister is expected to discuss cooperation in the field of cybersecurity with the Israel National Cyber Directorate, the statement added.
