National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday that the US would look at ways to deepen its security cooperation with Israel, a strident opponent of the deal reached with Iran.

"We will ... be looking forward, if the Israelis are interested and willing, they haven't said so yet, to discuss with them how we might further deepen and strengthen our security and intelligence cooperation," Rice said.

"Secretary of Defense Ash Carter will be going out to Israel this weekend, and to Saudi Arabia, and he will be continuing our practical cooperation with both Israel and our partners in the Gulf," she added.
