Israel Defense Forces chief Aviv Kohavi wraps up the second day of his official visit to Morocco, the first for an Israeli army head.

Kohavi toured the Mausoleum of King Muhammad V, where he laid a wreath on behalf of the IDF and Israel and signed the guest book at the site, the military says.

Aside from meeting with Morocco’s Defense Minister Abdellatif Loudiyi and chief of the Royal Armed Forces Belkhir El Farouk, Kohavi also meets with the chief of Morocco’s Intelligence Directorate, Brahim Hassani.

“The meetings discussed opportunities for military cooperation, both in exercises and training, as well as in the operational and intelligence fields,” the IDF says in a statement.

“The officials noted the historical and cultural ties between the two nations and their common interests in the Middle East,” the statement adds.
