US set to delay next round of Iran talks to hear new Israeli position
The US is seeking to extend the time between rounds of indirect nuclear talks with Iran, in order to talk to the new Israeli government more about its position.
Washington feels that the negotiations to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal are worth delaying in order to better cooperate with Israel, a source with knowledge of the US President Joe Biden’s administration’s side of the talks said on Wednesday.
The new government plans to send experts to Washington to discuss ways to better enforce the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action’s limitations on Iran’s nuclear program, including which sanctions to keep intact as some will be removed if the US returns to the deal.
This is a sharp departure from former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policy, as he blocked any dialogue about the Biden administration’s plan to reenter the JCPOA.
