The military-level work plan signed between NATO and the IDF will only improve upon the political objectives.
"We are pleased with the level of military cooperation between NATO and Israel," said Colonel Schwab. "We look forward to the advancement of partnership objectives that reflect our mutual interests."
NATO Partners are significant contributors to global security, enabling NATO's core task of Collective Defence and Security. Israel has been a partner in the Mediterranean Dialogue framework since 1994 and the latest Individual Partnership and Cooperation Programme was approved last month. NATO's partnerships serve to increase mutual cooperation and contribute to peace and security for the broader international community.
