The leadership of Israel in NATO

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin visited NATO HQ in Brussels and met with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on June 21.  The meeting was to establish a closer partnership between Israel and NATO.         The new measure to deepen the NATO-Israeli cooperation followed by the decision made earlier this year, on May 4th 2016,  by NATO to agree on opening an Israel Mission at the NATO HQ.

NATO and Israel have a long relationship and we are longstanding partners. I very much look forward to visiting Israel and to develop an even closer relationship with Israel in the coming years.” Reaffirmed NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, June 21, 2016 © NATO
