DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 18, 2017, 4:34 PM (IDT)

“They agreed to continue close collaboration and consultation on a range of bilateral defense activities and initiatives,” she added.

The agenda was replaced with separate statements an hour apart.
