'Israel can and should do whatever they need' vis-a-vis Iran: US envoy
US Ambassador to "Israel" Tom Nides claimed in an address to the National Leadership Mission of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in Al-Quds, in February, that “the Iranians are providing drones to Russia and those drones are killing innocent Ukrainians. There is no chance today of us going back to the negotiating table."
The US ambassador also said that first and foremost, and as US President Joe Biden stated, "we will not watch" while Iran acquires "a nuclear weapon".
Nides proclaimed that "all options are on the table" adding that "'Israel' can and should do whatever they need to deal with and we’ve got their back.”
According to the ambassador, “the cooperation between 'Israel' and the US vis-à-vis Iran is lockstep. Every day.”
