"The delegations pledged to continue the unprecedented coordination between the United States and Israel as negotiations continue."The parties also discussed the threat posed by Islamic State to the region, including Israel, and "ongoing efforts by the United States and coalition partners to degrade and ultimately destroy" the group, Meehan said.
