US ‘consulting’ Israel about Iran nuclear deal

The US has been seeking the advice of the Israeli regime — the sole nuclear arms possessor in the Middle East — about whether it should return to a historic nuclear deal with Iran and others.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken made the remark during a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Israeli-occupied Jerusalem al-Quds on Tuesday.

The United States is “consulting closely with Israel as we did today on the ongoing negotiations in Vienna around a potential return to the Iran nuclear agreement,” Blinken said, according to Reuters.

Washington left the accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in 2015 amid strong instigation on the part of Tel Aviv and some regional states.

The Austrian capital is now hosting fresh talks on the potential revival of the agreement. The Islamic Republic has said the negotiations have yielded “basic understandings,” but certain political decisions need to be made, particularly in Washington, for the talks to bear fruit.
