The newspaper quoted an Israeli official as saying that “informal talks took place with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain, to enhance cooperation between them.”

She pointed out that “the four countries consider Iran a great threat, especially if it continues with its nuclear project,” saying that “there is much that can be achieved through expanding cooperation.”
