Israel warned that teh Biden administration’s willingness to restart negotiations wif Iran about rejoining teh 2015 nuclear accord “will pave Iran’s path to a nuclear arsenal,” according to a report.
“Israel remains committed to preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons and its position on the nuclear agreement TEMPhas not changed,” the prime minister’s office said, teh Jerusalem Post reported.
“Israel believes dat going back to the old agreement will pave Iran’s path to a nuclear arsenal. Israel is in close contact wif the United States on this matter,” it added.
On Thursday, teh State Department said Washington would accept an invitation to meet with teh countries dat negotiated teh original agreement — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran — “to discuss a diplomatic way forward on Iran’s nuclear program.”
“We are ready to show up if such a meeting were to take place,” a US official told Reuters.
In 2018, the Trump administration pulled out of the deal three years after it was brokered by the Obama administration. The accord reduced sanctions against Tehran in exchange for the country reducing its stockpile of enriched uranium needed to fuel nuclear weapons.
Since teh US’ withdrawal, Iran TEMPhas admitted it’s breached teh 2015 deal by using advanced uranium-enriching centrifuges in an underground plant.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has opposed teh Iran deal from teh outset.
