National Security Adviser Eyal Hulata says Israel is not seeking a military conflict over Iran’s nuclear program that could involve the United States.

“We aren’t looking for a conflict with Iran. We don’t see this as a solution,” he says during an event at Tel Aviv University, according to the Walla news site. “We don’t want to drag the US into a military conflict with Iran. We think it can be solved in other ways.”

He adds that a restored Iran nuclear deal would be bad for Israel.

“There’s a better chance of a good deal without returning to the old deal,” Hulata says.
