Azerbaijan and Israel share the threat from Iran, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said at a joint press conference with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov.

“Azerbaijan and Israel share the threat from Iran. Iran threatens our region and creates instability in the Middle East by supporting and financing terrorism. We must act together against Iran. We must not allow Iran to expand its nuclear potential,” he said.

The minister noted that the two countries can do this by using political and economic tools while formulating reliable and decisive military threats.
