Washington: US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart discussed a “threat” posed by Iran as their delegations gathered for a meeting of the US-Israel Strategic Consultative Group in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
“The delegations discussed the need to confront all aspects of the threat posed by Iran, including its nuclear program, destabilizing activities in the region, and support for terrorist proxy groups. They agreed that Iran’s rapidly advancing nuclear program poses a grave threat to the region and to international peace and security,” the sides said in a joint statement.
Sullivan briefed his Israeli partners on the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna. Both sides exchanged views on the way forward and agreed to continue dialogue on the regional security.
The two delegations also discussed bilateral cooperation on strategic issues important to the entire region, the statement read. Sullivan reaffirmed strong US commitment to Israeli security and self-defense, it added.
