Israeli President Isaac Herzog said on Sunday that Israel was “extremely concerned” about a possible nuclear deal between world powers and Iran.
Along with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Berlin, Isaac Herzog said they are closely following ongoing talks to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.
“We are very concerned about a possible agreement because we are concerned about the lack of honesty, honesty and respect for the global rules shown by the Iranian regime,” he said.
Herzog accused Iran of ignoring international rules, and said that Tehran had publicly called for the elimination and elimination of Israel.
So why should the world trust Iran for its intentions? He added that he raised the issue today during his talks with Steinmeier and told him of Israel’s concerns.
Israel accuses Iran of seeking to acquire nuclear weapons, a charge denied by Tehran, which claims its program is designed for peaceful purposes.
Indirect talks between the United States and Iranian diplomats, brokered by the European Union, concluded in Vienna last month with agreement on a draft text to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.
Tehran presented its response to the draft agreement drawn up by the European Union on August 15, a week after talks in Vienna ended. The Biden administration responded to Iran’s statements through the European Union coordinator.
Josep Borrell, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, said last week that a solution was within reach.
“I hope that in the next few days we do not lose this momentum and that we can conclude the agreement,” he told reporters in Prague after an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers.
Iran, the United States, China, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the European Union signed the 2015 nuclear deal – officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the United States from the deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Iran, in order to launch a “maximum pressure campaign” on Tehran.
Iran responded by abandoning its nuclear-related obligations under the agreement. Since then, Tehran has exceeded the thresholds for enriching uranium, as well as the amount it is allowed to possess under the said JCPOA.
