SHARE

SHAFAQNA- An Israeli delegation is to travel to Washington next week to lobby US officials for a tough line in renewed talks between major powers and Iran on its nuclear programme.

“I will travel to Washington next week at the head of an important delegation, in light of what could be the last round of negotiations between world powers and Iran before a November deadline for an agreement,” Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz told Israeli public radio on Wednesday.

“If a bad agreement is reached, this will be unacceptable for us,” Steinitz added.

Israel bitterly opposed the interim deal that Washington and other powers reached with Tehran last November, paving the way for the talks on a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s future nuclear activities.
