The U.S. and Israeli National Security Advisors, joined by other senior officials, convened the U.S.-Israel Strategic Consultative Group (SCG) to discuss, inter alia, “significant regional developments since the last SCG meeting… including advances in Iran’s nuclear program”. Sullivan underlined that “while the U.S. remains committed to diplomacy as the best means for preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, the U.S. is preparing alternative options, in coordination with its partners, should diplomacy fail”. The two sides decided to “remain in close coordination on the full range of issues of mutual interest, and to remain united against all threats to their national security”.
