Israeli Navy chief David Salama hosted the chief of the Hellenic Navy, Stylianos Petrakis today at the Haifa naval base, the military says.

“Petrakis met with senior officials from the Israeli Navy to discuss the continuation and strengthening of cooperation and joint exercises between the two navies in the region,” the Israel Defense Forces says in a statement.

He was also briefed on a “variety of matters” from the head of Naval Operations and the commander of a missile ship, the IDF adds.

The IDF says Petrakis concluded his brief trip with a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem.
