The partnership between Eshki and Gold is astonishing because of the absence of ties between the two countries. Bloomberg lately reported that representatives from the two countries have held five clandestine meetings over the past 17 months on the threat posed by Iran.

Gold and Eshki emphasized that they were not speaking as official representatives, but rather as foreign policy experts. They expressed hope that their states could find common ground in the face of regional challenges.

Eshki told both Israeli TV stations that he and Gold had sat down together “to call for peace in the Middle East.”
He said: “Saudis and Israelis could work together when Israel announces that it accepts the Arab Initiative.”

Gold, the current head of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs think tank, spoke too of the aggression posed to the Middle East by Iran. He warned against the Islamic republic as a nuclear threshold state.

“Our standing today on this stage, ” Gold said”, does not mean we have resolved all the differences that our countries have shared over the years. But our hope is we will be able to address them fully in the years ahead.”
