According to their joint statement, the U.S. side “updated the Israeli delegation on recent developments in the Vienna talks and the two sides exchanged views on the way forward. The officials affirmed that the U.S. and Israel are aligned in their determination to ensure that Iran never gets a nuclear weapon”.
