In his Thursday interview with Radio Israel, Barak went on to say, “We should not react or respond to these reports. The issue of attacking Iran is too important to let a report like this decide in which direction it goes.”
He also pointed out that the US and israel have developed closer views on launching a military strike against Iran.
Barak noted that in case he and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decide to attack Iran, the issue needs to be approved by the cabinet.
“Reports in the media making it seem as if only two people are sitting together and hatching plans for an attack [on Iran] are utterly ridiculous,” he said.
Washington and Tel Aviv have repeatedly threatened Tehran with a military strike to force it to halt its nuclear energy program, claimed by the duo to have been directed towards the acquisition of military nuclear capability.
But Iran has dismissed the allegation and the threats, pledging a crushing response to any attack on its soil.
