Report: Israel, US to launch quiet talks on Iran in coming days

Jerusalem and Washington will launch strategic discussions on Iran in the coming days, which will focus on the two nations’ intelligence assessments regarding the Islamic Republic nuclear program, Axios reports.

The sides are planning quiet, serious dialogue in a bid to avoid a public fight over US policy on Iran under the new Biden administration.

They will reconvene the working group on Iran, first set up under the Obama administration, which is led by the national security advisers of both nations.

Yesterday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Israel will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, regardless of whether a multilateral accord is in place to prevent Tehran from doing so.
