Israel urgently needs new allies in the global political arena besides Washington, Israeli Foreign Minister said. 

“The link between Israel and its main strategic partner the United States has weakened,” Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said as world powers and Iran resumed nuclear talks in Geneva on Wednesday.

“You can understand that. The Americans have got too many challenges North Korea, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, and they've got their own domestic economic problems.”

Lieberman’s comments coincide with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s second visit to Russia this year.

Putin said he was hopeful of a positive outcome from the talks in Geneva, stressing that both Russia and Israel were optimistic that a “mutually acceptable resolution” could be found.
