Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon reiterated on Monday that as far as Israel is concerned, all options are still on the table regarding Iran, according to Army Radio.

Ayalon expressed hope that harsher blanket sanctions on Iran's banks and oil and gas sector could compel Iran to reach an agreement with the international community to stop its nuclear program.

But overall, Ayalon remained pessimistic, consistent with most recent official government statements, that time is running out on the talks and that all of Israel's self-defense options remain on the table.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany (P5+1) just concluded a second round of talks with Iran on its nuclear program in Baghdad last Thursday. A third and final round of talks will take place in Moscow on June 18-19.
