Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, has said on Sunday that Israel and the United States view the Iranian nuclear threat differently.

Speaking to reporters on his arrival to Afghanistan, Dempsey said that the US and Israel have a different interpretation of the same intelligence reports in regards to Iran's nuclear program.

“Israel sees the Iranian threat more seriously than the US sees it, because a nuclear Iran poses a threat to Israel's very existence,” Dempsey said, adding that he and his Israeli counterpart, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, regularly confer on the issue.
