The United States does not see a connection between efforts to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons capabilities and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro told Army Radio on Monday.

"There is no connection between these two issues," Shapiro said in contradiction to remarks by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that a nuclear Iran would harm any future agreement with the Palestinians.

"Both of these issues are connected to the security of Israel and also to our security and the entire Middle East," he said, although, he added that "we do not see in some kind of relation between them to which we request to give to one and receive from another".
