Washington: US national security advisor on Tuesday held talks with his Israeli counterpart at the White House on range of issues, including Syria and Iran's contested nuclear programme, in the first high-level dialogue between both the nations since President Barack Obama was re-elected.

Tom Donilon hosted a delegation of senior Israeli officials led by Yaakov Amidror, the head of Israel's National Security Council, for consultations on Iran, Syria and a range of other regional security issues, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

"Today's meetings were the latest in a series of regular, high-level consultations between the United States and Israel, consistent with our strong bilateral partnership, and part of our unshakeable commitment to Israel's security," Vietor said in a statement.
