(Worthy News) – The Mossad intelligence agency chief David Barnea will visit Washington next week as part of Israel’s attempts to dissuade the US and other Western powers from signing the deal. Barnea will be the third senior Israeli official to do so in recent days after both Defense Minister Benny Gantz and national security adviser Eyal Hulata also visited Washington in the last week.
As the revival of the nuclear deal with Iran looms ever closer, Israel is putting all of its efforts into persuading the US administration to not return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear agreement between Iran and the world powers, under the proposed conditions. The deal was originally signed in 2015 by the administration of President Barak Obama; the US withdrew from the agreement in 2018 under the administration of President Donald Trump.
Ashley Perry, a global communications strategist and a former senior adviser to Israeli government ministers, told The Media Line that it is clear that Israel is extremely worried about a return to the JCPOA because of what it understands to be in the agreement, much of which has already been released to the media. Israel also has other ways of staying abreast of what is in the yet unannounced deal, he said. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More…) ]
