Israel's national security adviser to meet US counterpart amid 'campaign' against Iran nuclear deal: report

Israel’s national security adviser will travel to Washington for a meeting with his US counterpart amid a push by Tel Aviv to pressure Washington not to return to the Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, Israel Hayom reported on Monday.

The meeting between Israel's Meir Ben-Shabbat and America's Jake Sullivan will take place at the Israeli Embassy and will last "a few hours", according to the news website. The report said the meeting appears to be aimed at sharing "physical information" that cannot be relayed online.

Ben Shabbat's trip will reportedly be separate to the one to be undertaken by the head of Mossad, Yossi Cohen, who will convene with CIA chief William Burns and other senior officials in the US intelligence community.

An unnamed official who spoke to The Times of Israel said the officials had been instructed to "present Israel's opposition to the agreement." They added that if Iran opted for a new agreement, then Israel would declare its position on the agreement's "characteristics and content", without elaborating.
