15 security personnel from Papua New Guinea have departed for Israel to undergo a month's training with Israeli soldiers.

EM TV reports that the personnel include members of the PNG Defence Force, Police Force and the Protocol office.

Among the trainees is former Police Commissioner, Gary Baki.

The training programme has been made possible by a co-operation agreement signed late last year by PNG's Prime Minister, Peter O'Neill and his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu.
