Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold said on Wednesday that there is a convergence of interests between Israel and the Sunni Arab world.

Speaking at the 16th Annual Herzliya Conference in Jerusalem, Gold explained that the main reason for the development is the mutual concern over Iran's intentions in the Middle East.

Gold also stated that the Palestinian issue is not the main issue anymore in the region, and that solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is "no longer the currency on which you build ties in the Arab world."

"It is important to build these relationships piece by piece and not out in the open," he said, adding that therefore there has not been much media coverage on the issue.
