Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday afternoon met with US Defense Secretary Robert Gates in Washington to discuss ways to maintain Israel's qualitative military edge in the Middle East. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen also participated in the meeting.

"I am confident that the qualitative, security relationship between Israel and the US that has existed up until now, will continue to gather strength and develop further in the future," said Barak.

He also discussed with Gates and Mullen, Israel's concerns over Russia's recent agreement to sell missiles to Syria, the transfer of weapons from Syria to  Lebanese terror group Hizbullah and the current state of relations between Israel and Turkey, another one of the US's allies in the Middle East region.
