The IDF Chief of Staff, Lieut. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, met virtually last week with the Chief of the Defence Staff of the United Kingdom, Gen. Sir Nick Carter, and signed a joint agreement to formalize and enhance defense relations as well as support the growing partnership between Israel and the UK, according to an IDF statement.  

Britain's ambassador in Israel tweeted: "Delighted to announce that UK and Israeli Chiefs of Defence Staff yesterday signed a new agreement to further deepen our military co-operation," wrote FCDONeilWigan.  

The content of the agreement is secret, but according to assessments, it covers a number of fields of combat. "Most of the agreement is highly classified but the cooperation will include defence medical training, organisational design and concepts, and defence education," a report by bicom says. "Both militaries share a commitment to improving and integrating their multi-domain capabilities in maritime, land, air, space, and cyber and electromagnetic."
