Ya’alon, Carter begin talks on maintaining Israeli military edge

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and US Secretary of State Ash Carter have begun talks on the defense package Washington will offer Israel for the next decade, following the Iran nuclear deal.

Ya’alon, who is in the US on an official visit to discuss the defense package, spoke Monday night at the Israeli Embassy in Washington at a memorial event marking 20 years since the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.

"During this visit, I will be meeting with my good friend Secretary of Defense Ashton (Ash) Carter, who has time and again proven his commitment to the security of the State of Israel," Ya’alon said.
