Former head of Military Intelligence Directorate said Monday that Israel is "worried" about the strategic partnership and investment deal between China and Iran.
Amos Yadlin, who now heads Institute for National Security Studies, told Ynet the deal will include joint military maneuvers, research and development as well as intelligence cooperation.
"On the one hand, China opposes Iran having a nuclear bomb, but on the other, it's not helping to stop it. Iran, too, needs the political protection in which China would stop the United States from pressuring it. The Chinese understand the Biden administration is not the Trump administration and can be much more aggressive," he said.
