JERUSALEM, Israel – Israel and the Biden administration are working together to develop a “Plan B” if nuclear talks between the United States and Iran fail, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Monday.
“The United States and Israel share intelligence information, and the cooperation with the United States in this field is only getting stronger. We are working with them in order to establish a Plan B and to demonstrate that if there is no deal, other activities will begin, as President Biden said,” the defense minister said, speaking to military correspondents.
President Joe Biden met with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Friday, during which they discussed the Iranian nuclear threat. The two leaders agree that Iran should never obtain a nuclear weapon but disagree on strategy.
Biden has sought to revive the nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers in 2015, which placed limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Israel believes Iran made the deal in bad faith and that it fails to address Iran’s regional threats, like its proxies and ballistic missiles.
