Israel and Greece agreed to set up a regional force to deal with natural disasters following a meeting between the foreign ministers of the two countries. Avigdor Lieberman arrived in Greece Wednesday on the first official visit by an Israeli foreign minister in 15 years. Greece said it would organize the regional force and has invited the Palestinian Authority and other countries in the region such as Turkey, Egypt and Jordan to join the effort. The force comes in response to the Carmel Forest fire in northern Israe last December; Greece was among the countries to assist in quelling the blaze.
