He proposed a temporary nuclear agreement with Iran .. the US National Security Adviser seeks to persuade Israel of the Biden administration’s plans
Axios website transfer (AxiosThe American, quoting 3 high-ranking Israeli officials, said that it is expected that US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan will visit Israel next week to hold talks related to Iran, in light of the ongoing negotiations in Vienna to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement.
And Israeli journalist Barak Ravid – who reported the news – indicated that Sullivan had raised in his discussions with his Israeli counterpart in recent days the idea of the United States concluding a temporary agreement with Iran if it was not possible to return to the 2015 agreement, from which the administration of former US President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018.
The sources said that Sullivan is expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.
The same sources added that the US National Security Adviser may also visit Ramallah to hold talks with Palestinian officials.
The White House declined to comment on Sullivan’s travel plans.
The Axios website stated that the Israeli government fears that the administration of US President Joe Biden will resort to a less stringent version of the agreement with Iran if the road remains blocked to return to the original agreement concluded in 2015.
Israeli officials say such a potential deal would ease sanctions on Iran without making it curb its nuclear programme.
The site indicated that Sullivan had participated during the era of former US President Barack Obama in secret talks with Iran, which led to an interim nuclear agreement called the “2013 Joint Plan of Action.”
