Israel and Greece signed a status of forces accord in Tel Aviv on Sunday that offers legal defense to both militaries while training in the other's country.

Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos visited his Israeli counterpart Moshe Ya'alon at the Defense Ministry, where the accord was signed. Israel has only ever signed a similar accord with the United States.

During their meeting, Kammenos and Ya'alon discussed continued bilateral defense ties, and the latest regional situation.

"We very much appreciate your visit here during a difficult period for Greece. This underlines the importance of relations between the countries," Ya'alon said. "We wish the Greek people and Greece itself success in its effort to overcome the economic challenge. We pray for that since we believe Greece is a very important country, with a history and a contribution to the history of humanity."
