In a sign of increased ties between the United States and Israel, a meeting of the joint Defense Policy Advisory Group took place on Wednesday in Tel Aviv to discuss ways to ensure Israel’s military edge in the region.

The main focus of the talks was the West's ongoing standoff with Iran over its nuclear program as well as the instability in Syria and Israeli concerns that Syria' sophisticated weaponry and chemical arsenal will fall into rogue hands.

The US was represented at the two-days of talks by Undersecretary of Defense for Policy James Miller. Israel was represented by top Defense Ministry officials including Dir.-Gen. Udi Shani and head of the Diplomatic-Security Bureau Amos Gilad.

Discussions were also expected to focus on the continued US support for Israel’s missile defense systems.
