The head of the National Security Council, Eyal Hulta: “The Iranian problem is not ours, it is global”

by time news

A week before the expected return of another round of talks between Iran and the powers in Vienna – in the American and European hope that there is still a return to the nuclear agreement, the differences between the American and Israeli approach regarding dealings with Iran were evident again. The head of the National Security Council and the National Security Adviser, Eyal Hulta, today (Sunday) attended a conference of the IISS Institute on Security and Strategy held in Manama, Bahrain, and spoke on the subject.

This was the first time that Hulta, who took up his current position at the institution, spoke publicly and even answered questions from journalists and researchers present at the conference. Turkey al-Faisal, the former Saudi ambassador to Washington, last year sharply attacked Israel at this conference. At the conference today, al-Faisal asked Hulata about the connection between the Palestinian issue and Iranian aggression. In response, Hulata wondered whether when the Iranians fired on the facilities of the Aramco oil company in Saudi Arabia in 2019, it was also because of Israel. He added that Israel is a stabilizing factor in the Middle East and not an appellant, and that Israel’s rivals will always raise the Palestinian excuse against it. “The Israeli government is committed to stability and improving the lives of Palestinians. We are working with the Palestinian Authority and intend to continue to do so, and in time there may be political developments,” Hulta said.

The panel was also attended by Brett McGurk, Adviser to President Biden. He claimed that the “maximum pressure” campaign used by the Trump administration against Iran had failed, saying that the Biden administration did not believe that further pressure on Iran would change its conduct. McGurk said it would not be accurate to claim that the U.S. responded in silence to Iranian attacks on its forces, and that “not everything is reported on CNN.”

Hulta, on the other hand, said that it had already been proven that Iran would not agree to policy changes just because they would ask for it. “They do not work that way.” According to him, it can be seen that only pressure exerted by previous American governments caused Iran to change policy. “Our assumption is that if Iran does not commit itself to changing its policy it will not change. The Iranian problem is not ours, it is global. Israel has repeatedly said it would be willing to defend itself if required. We will make the necessary preparations. Everything that is said about it in this forum, “Hulta added.

In response to a question addressed to him, Hulata referred to Iranian cyber capabilities, saying that Iranians believe it is a tool “that they can use more easily without paying results. It is easier for them to use cyber, than by other means.”

Meanwhile, Iranian media reported today that a cyber attack launched against the Iranian private airline Mahan Air was thwarted. The airline was blacklisted by the United States, which included companies that helped Iran’s Revolutionary Guards. According to reports, the company is carrying arms shipments from Iran to Hezbollah. The activities of many of the gas stations in Iran.
