This week, NATO’s Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy, Ambassador Bettina Cadenbach, travelled to Israel, where she met with a range of officials from Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence, and the National Emergency Management Authority.

The visit was part of Ambassador Cadenbach’s regular consultations with her Israeli counterparts…on the long-standing and mutually beneficial partnership between NATO and Israel….

Ambassador Cadenbach stressed…the Alliance’s readiness to enhance political dialogue and continue working with Israel on several areas of mutual interest, including resilience, the impact of climate change, disruptive technologies, Women, Peace and Security, and cyber and hybrid threats.

During her stay, Ambassador Cadenbach also met with the Allied Ambassadors, through the Slovak Embassy, which is the current NATO Contact Point Embassy in Israel.
