Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to send Mossad chief Yossi Cohen to Washington to present Israel’s demands related to the international nuclear agreement with Iran, according to local media.
Israel’s Channel 12 reported that Cohen is expected to travel to the United States next month. He will be the first senior Israeli official to meet with new U.S. President Joe Biden. He is also expected to meet with the new head of the CIA.
According to the report, Cohen and his team would present to the Biden administration all the information Israel possessed about Iran’s nuclear program.
The television report added that Cohen would demand that Joe Biden, in the event the U.S. rejoins the nuclear agreement, ask Iran to stop enriching uranium. It also said Tehran must stop producing advanced centrifuges, stop supporting so-called “terrorist groups,” especially the Hezbollah resistance movement in Lebanon, end its military presence in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, cease terrorist activities against Israeli targets overseas and give the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna (IAEA) full access to all aspects of its nuclear program.
Israel fears a deal in which Iran can both continue to enrich uranium and receive financial relief that will allow Tehran to repair its economy.
