WASHINGTON — The United States and Israel said on Monday that Iran  is among the "greatest challenges" to stability in the Middle East and are reaffirming their commitment to preventing the country from developing nuclear weapons.

After talks on Monday in Washington, senior US and Israeli officials said in a joint statement that Iran's nuclear program, along with its support of anti-Israel terrorist groups, are of "grave concern," and they pledged to keep Iran from acquiring atomic arms. The discussions were part of the semi-annual US-Israel Strategic Dialogue.

In addition to expressing concerns about Iran, the two countries also vowed to continue to pursue peace between Israel and the Palestinians as well as between the Jewish state and all of its Arab neighbors.
