Israel, Greece talk defense


Israel and Greece discussed expanding defense ties.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrapped up a two-day visit to Greece on Tuesday, and Reuters quoted officials in both governments as saying that enhanced defense and security cooperation had been on the agenda.

Additional joint military exercises and shared technology may be on the agenda, the news agency said.

Israel is seeking to expand ties with Mediterranean nations in the wake of the recent deterioration in its traditional alliance with Turkey.

Greece has longstanding ties with Arab nations, but is also seeking avenues to enhance its Western profile after its economy suffered a disastrous downturn.
