Iran Consulting With Israel Via America?

President Barack Obama:

..., the Iranians are now prepared, it appears, to negotiate. We have to test diplomacy. We have to see if, in fact, they are serious about their willingness to abide by international norms and international law and international requirements and resolutions. And we in good faith will approach them, indicating that it is our preference to resolve these issues diplomatically. But we enter into these negotiations very clear-eyed. They will not be easy.  And anything that we do will require the highest standards of verification in order for us to provide the sort of sanctions relief that I think they are looking for. So we will be in close consultation with Israel and our other friends and allies in the region during this process...

So, If the US is negotiating with Iran and it is in "close consultation with Israel", does that mean Iran is indirectly negotiating with Iran? (As when Israel was supposedly indirectly negotiating with Hamas?  and not like Kissinger's shuttle diplomacy).
