NATO Deputy Secretary General to visit Israel
NATO's Mediterranean Dialogue

On 23 October 2006, the Deputy Secretary General of NATO H.E. Ambassador Alessandro Minuto Rizzo and the Deputy Prime Minister and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel H.E. Ms. Tzipi Livni opened a two-day conference on: “NATO’s Transformation, the Mediterranean Dialogue, NATO-Israel Relations", co-sponsored by NATO Public Diplomacy Division and the Atlantic Forum of Israel in Herzliya.

"When I look more closely at the Mediterranean Dialogue and focus on the specifics of NATO-Israel cooperation, I am struck by how much we have achieved and how quickly things are now moving forward," said Ambassador Minuto Rizzo.

"We have recently agreed an individual cooperation programme – or ICP. This programme is the first of its kind in the Mediterranean Dialogue. It covers many areas of common interest, such as the fight against terrorism and joint military exercises, where Israel’s expertise is very much valued."

Participants in the conference were  high-level opinion leaders and policy makers from Israel and officials from NATO.
