Ashkenazi embarks on off

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi embarked early Sunday on a five-day work trip to the Far East. Accompanied by his wife and senior IDF officers, Ashkenazi will meet with his Indian counterpart Deepak Kapoor, who was recently the chief of staff's guest in Israel, and senior Indian military officers and defense officials. This will be the first time an Israeli chief of staff conducts an official visit to India. Ashkenazi is expected to return to Israel on Thursday.
