Israel and Cyprus to Improve Military Cooperation

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon met Cypriot Defense Minister Fotis Fitiou, Thursday, in Fitiou's first trip out of Cyprus since being named to his post.

Referring to the stragetic relationship between the two countries and their benefit from the natural-gas field that lies between their shores, Ya'alon said, "We intend to improve the preparedness of our navy in the Mediterranean to protect the gas facilities, and we certainly look forward to cooperation on this issue with Cyprus."
