“As a matter of fact, this afternoon we have a meeting with the senior Israeli team to talk about Iran and to talk about sanctions,” AFP reported Robert Einhorn, a US State Department adviser, as saying on Thursday.
The diplomat did not divulge further information on the nature of the talks or the identity of the Israeli team members due to attend the White House meeting.
However, he hinted at the intelligence work involved and said that the Israelis “are an important source of information. We cooperate on intelligence matters with lots of friendly countries around the world, but Israeli intelligence is particularly good.”
