The U.S. and Israel said Iran’s nuclear program “poses a grave threat to the region” and vowed to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon following a meeting in Israel between U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart, Eyal Hulata.
“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,” according to a statement released Wednesday by the White House.
“The officials affirmed that the United States and Israel are aligned in their determination to ensure that Iran never gets a nuclear weapon,” the statement added.
Sullivan also reportedly briefed Hulata on the current international nuclear negotiations currently underway in Vienna, Austria, aimed at resurrecting the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Former President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the deal in 2018.
