WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. and Israeli military leaders expressed strong concerns at a Pentagon meeting about Iran’s nuclear advances on Thursday, in which Israel expressed a goal of deepening dialogue about a common military readiness that could deter regional aggression and Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said he was deeply concerned about Iran’s lack of constructive diplomatic engagement and warned that President Joe Biden was “willing to turn to other options” if current US policy America on Iran failed.

Reuters, citing a senior US official, exclusively reported that Thursday’s US-Israeli agenda is expected to include discussions of possible military exercises aimed at prepare for the worst-case scenario of destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities if diplomacy fails and if their nation’s leaders demand it. .
