(Worthy News) – Recognizing that the Biden administration is intent on returning to the agreement in its original form, has focused on convincing the US to leave in place instituted by former president Donald after the 2015 accord was signed, an Israeli official told The Times of Israel on Wednesday.

Israel believes that the removal of those sanctions would squander the bulk of the remaining leverage the US still has to pressure Iran on its ballistic missile program and its malign activities in the region, the official said.
