The current joint US-Israeli military exercise is proof of the Unites States commitment to remain strong and together with Israel, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey said Monday during a meeting with President Shimon Peres.

Dempsey emphasized that the military exercise being conducted by the soldiers, pilots and sailors of both countries, is the largest one ever.

For his part, Peres thanked Dempsey for what he termed as the profound cooperation between US and Israeli forces, indicating the friendship between the two countries is "at its height and at its best."

"This cooperation is meaningful, politically and militarily." he said. While not ignoring the dangers in the region, Peres stressed that it was important not to overlook the opportunities.
