Clashes between Israel and the United States are not desirable, but the countries have dealt with similar disagreements before, Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor said Sunday morning in relation to the Iranian threat.

In an interview with Israel Radio, the Intelligence Agencies Minister said that the alliance between Washington and Jerusalem crosses the lines of parties and establishments, and bears political, security and economic significance.

Meridor added that Israel has succeeded in bringing the issue of Iran's nuclear program to international awareness, and the sanction have caused Tehran to fear the world's reaction to its nuclear program.
