US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro said Thursday that the US and Israel were in complete coordination in efforts to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

While speaking at an event in Haifa, Shapiro said that the US and Israel were "focused on the same goal," the prevention of a nuclear-armed Iran.

Shapiro stated that sanctions to reduce the amount of revenue Iran receives from its oil industry were "getting stronger everyday."

The US envoy alluded to the possibility of military action against Iran, saying "all other options are still available," but he added that there was still a lot of progress to be made on stopping Iran's nuclear drive through sanctions.
