In an interview with Al-Hurra news, Stroul said that efforts to thwart Iranian threats “require the enhancement of multilateral regional cooperation”, Khaberni reported.

Stroul stressed that "military options for countering Iran are always ready for whenever US President Joe Biden should request them," noting that Washington is seeking to form with its allies "a joint defensive and missile system to deter Iran".

During his visit to the region, Austin will also discuss the situation in Palestine, Stroul said.
