In 2013 Daniel Taub spoke to The Independent about the Geneva accord which had been signed earlier between the UN and Iran. He was keen to mention that the accord would have little influence on the threat that Iran was posing through the acquisition of nuclear weapons.
He affirmed that Iran would still continue to acquire nuclear weapons even after the country had signed the accord. The threat posed by Iran’s ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons has led to the formation of new alliances between Israel and a number of longstanding protagonists.
According to Daniel, many states agree that the threat is a dangerous one and an alliance between countries against this issue is a huge step towards a better tomorrow. He adds that the alliance is a sign that people can rise above the existing differences to fulfill a greater purpose.
He was hopeful that the new relations would stand despite the previous disputes which had existed for many years. It was impossible to face the new challenges divided, and that is enough reason for a long enduring relationship between the countries. Today, Daniel continues to contribute greatly to international matters.
