Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Monday that Israel is holding secret talks with some Arab states that do not recognize it, looking to establish diplomatic ties based on a common fear of Iran. Lieberman told newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth that among the countries he was in contact with were Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, - the first such disclosure by a senior Israeli official. Saudi Arabia denied having any talks with Israel, and Kuwait was not immediately available for comment.
