Israel wants to pursue a hardline stance against US President Joe Biden’s plan to resume the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (IPBC) reported on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports that according to the broadcaster, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a consultative session on Monday on whether Israel should endorse or reject the US plan to renew its nuclear agreement with Iran and to guarantee to include Iran's ballistic missile project.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, and Army Chief Aviv Kochavi reportedly supported taking a moderate stance on the issue and initiating a dialogue with the White House about it.
IPBC also highlighted Israeli pressure on the European signatories of the nuclear deal in an attempt to prevent them from returning to the 2015 agreement.
“Israel tried to persuade France, Britain, and Germany to add clauses to any agreement that might be signed with Tehran in case negotiations are resumed on this [nuclear deal] file," it said.
EU signalled on Monday that Iran could comply with its nuclear obligations if the US rejoins the 2015 nuclear deal.
