The partnerships aimed to handle the threats that come as a result of Iran’s ambitions to venture into nuclear. According to Daniel Taub, Israel firmly believes that the Geneva accord will not be enough to handle Iran’s threat or retard her process of being in possession of a nuclear weapon.
While maintaining pressure on allies, a security team from Israel arrived for discussions with American officials in Washington. Daniel Taub said the conditions might result in the formation of alliances that are radical and unthinkable.
To oppose the Shia alliances sponsored by Tehran in the Middle East, Daniel Taub sited the collaboration of Israel with other Sunni Countries like Saudi Arabia which are also bothered by Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
According to Taub, it is not only Israel that is worried about Iran’s nuclear plans. Other countries like Tehran, Damascus, Beirut, and Gaza are also worried. This is a show that if the countries united it could be much easier to contain the nuclear threat they are facing from Iran.
Daniel Taub is hopeful that the formation of alliances between the Middle East countries might be possible despite differences that have run for many years. According to him, the circumstances have forced Nations in the region to make choices they did not have to make in the past and creates an opportunity for Israel to partner with them.

He added that within the region, there are elements in some nations that see that Israel can be a partner for various things they might need. Those nations in the Middle East that are development oriented and seeking to prosper are asking questions which according to Daniel Taub is a possibility for thinking about the formation of a relationship.
Despite strong opposition from Israel on a deal signed the previous weekend, Daniel Taub insisted that the relationship between Israel and the Western allies is one of the healthiest relationships.
William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, was lauded on all sides in the House of Commons for the part of UK in the deal.
Mr. Hague said that various significant commitments have been made by Iran and that the deal was the initial step to ensuring safety from nuclear proliferation in the Middle East and the whole World.
