"Israel" PM Calls for 'Immediate Cessation' of Vienna Talks
"Israel" continues to project its insecurity and concerns over the Iran nuclear talks and the removal of sanctions on the Islamic Republic with the occupation's prime minister's latest move of trying to undermine the Vienna Talks.
Israeli occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett urged Thursday the United States to halt the nuclear talks between Iran and major powers in Vienna, also known as the Vienna talks, accusing Tehran of "nuclear blackmail."
Bennett called for an "immediate cessation of the resumed talks that restarted in Vienna following a five-month hiatus.
The statements came during a phone call with US State Secretary Antony Blinken, which Bennett used to voice his opposition to the 2015 JCPOA, whose revival world powers have been seeking since the 2018 US withdrawal under Donald Trump.
The occupation's PM also urged Washington to take "concrete measures" against Tehran.
"Iran is carrying out 'nuclear blackmail' as a negotiation tactic, and this must be met with an immediate cessation of negotiations and by concrete steps taken by the major powers," a statement from his office said.
"Iran Deserves No Sanctions Relief"
Bennett had previously directed "Tel Aviv's" western allies to not give in to Iran's said "nuclear blackmail."
"Iran deserves no rewards, no bargain deals, and no sanctions relief in return for their brutality. I call upon our allies around the world: Do not give in to Iran’s nuclear blackmail," he said.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh had said Wednesday that "Israel" had been trying to "poison" the negotiation process in Vienna on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by spreading false news about Iran.
The Israeli calls for ending the talks come as the Islamic Republic said the talks were proceeding with seriousness.
The remaining parties to the 2015 agreement - Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia - have been participating directly in the Vienna talks.
