In a surprise move, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Michael Mullen presented IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi with an honorary citation on Thursday in an official ceremony at the pentagon.
The citation was presented to Ashkenazi as a token of appreciation for his many contributions to the war on terror, the security of Israel and security-related dialogue between Israel and the US.
Ashkenazi is the US for a week of talks - with a focus on Iran - with top US defense and diplomatic officials.
