Israel, Spain Sign Emergency Cooperation Pact


Homefront Defense Minister Avi Dichter and Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz signed a cooperation agreement, Sunday evening, calling for mutual assistance in times of emergency or massive disasters. The pact is one in a series of such agreements with countries like Germany and the United States to strengthen the matter of international assistance as illustrated during the Carmel Ridge fire disaster and the Second Lebanon War. Dichter said there will be unprecedented exercises in handling international aid.

Minister Diaz said his delegation came to Israel as a message of the desire to strengthen and institutionalize the relations between Spain and Israel."
