US President Barack Obama said on Friday that the US and Israeli governments have been in discussions for months about security cooperation.

"We've been in discussions with the Israeli government for months now about the importance of us getting back on track in working together to enhance our security cooperation," Obama said during a webcast with US Jewish organizations about the nuclear deal with Iran.

He said that cooperation could include next generation missile defense programs, improved intelligence and "how to counteract Iran proxies."
