Jerusalem: In a bid to ensure security in region, US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter on Monday met Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, the first time since the nuclear agreement with Iran was signed.

“We need to work together to preserve security in the region,” Carter told Ya’alon, adding: “Israel is a source of stability of the US strategy in the Middle East.”

Carter, whose visit was scheduled before the announcement of the nuclear agreement last Tuesday, arrived overnight amidst evident tensions between Israel and the US over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s staunch opposition to the agreement, Xinhua news agency reported.

Carter pledged the US commitment to Israel’s security, noting that his visit marks “80 years of close friendship” between the two countries.

On Tuesday, Carter is scheduled to meet Netanyahu, who called the nuclear agreement between Iran and the six world powers “a historic mistake”.

Facebook has launched in the US free online education programme CodeFWDTo to increase the numbers of underrepresented and female students interested in pursuing computer programming.

“We’re working on a number of initiatives like CodeFWD to widen the pipeline of diverse talent studying computer science so the next generation of tech innovators reflects and incorporates diverse perspectives, building a future that benefits us all,” Lauryn Ogbechie, Education Partnerships Director at Facebook, said in a statement on Tuesday.

Created in partnership with connected toys maker Sphero, CodeFWD by Facebook, has been designed for both English and Spanish speakers.

It is a three-step programme where educators and organisations introduce computer programming to 4th to 8th grade students.

With the first module “I do”, CodeFWD prepares educators to introduce the basics of computer programming to their students, even as they may be discovering the concepts themselves.

The “We do” module lets educators and students learn together. And the “You do” is designed to help students practice their new skills.
