ISRAEL: GERMAN MILITARY CADETS COMPLETE 3 WEEKS TRAINING



German/Nat

The first group of German military cadets to train in Israel have completed their three week mission.

The commander of the German group praised his Israeli hosts – saying his cadets learnt a thing or two from them.

German cadets go through their paces on a training exercise in northern Israel.

Israel regularly sends troops to Germany – but for the last week young German soldiers have been in Israel – a first.

The training has been designed to build tolerance and openness – an aim which appears to have been achieved.

SOUNDBITE: (German)
“The Israeli soldiers have great motivation, they know to do their jobs very well and I think we can learn a thing or two from them.”
SUPER CAPTION: Major Juergen Mitcher, German Army

Germany has similar programs with the United States, France, Britain and Canada.

But Israel is its first non-NATO exchange partner.
