Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Wednesday that Israel was “very far off” from a decision about an attack on Iran over its nuclear program.
Barak was speaking on Israel’s Army Radio ahead of a planned visit this week by U.S. armed forces chief General Martin Dempsey that has triggered speculation Washington would press Israel to delay any action against Tehran’s nuclear program.
Asked whether the United States was asking Israel to let them know ahead of any assault against Iran, Barak replied:
“We haven’t made any decision to do this,” and added: “This entire thing is very far off.”
Barak also suggested Israel was coordinating with Washington its plans about handling Tehran’s nuclear project which Israel views as an existential threat.
