Israeli security official: US deceived us in negotiations with Tehran
Israeli media quote the former head of the National Security Council, Major General (Reserve) Yaakov Amidror, as saying that the United States "acts in accordance with its interests" with regard to the nuclear agreement.
Israeli media quoted the former head of the National Security Council, Major General (Reserve) Yaakov Amidror, as saying, "the Americans had deceived us in the previous nuclear agreement," stressing that the US "acts in accordance with its interests."
Amidror told Channel 12, "We must remind that before signing the previous nuclear agreement and the start of talks between the Americans and the Iranians, the Americans deceived us."
He continued, "They made us understand that the negotiations were ongoing through one channel, while they were, in fact, talking through a second channel with the Iranians, and they did not tell us about it; we found out about it ourselves."
He added, "We should not be surprised if the Americans do not tell us what is happening between them and the Iranians. In the end, the US is a sovereign country and works in accordance with its interests."
Israeli media reported on Wednesday that the administration of US President Joe Biden "does not take into account" the current Israeli occupation government with regard to the file of the Iranian nuclear deal.
Israeli media cited, on Tuesday, a security source revealing that "the United States of America has relinquished all its demands to Iran." The source explains that "the assessment is that at this stage the crystallized agreement cannot be stopped," and that "Tehran got the dream deal."
In this context, Israeli media reported a few days ago, quoting political sources, that "Iran is close to signing the nuclear deal with major powers."
The political sources stated that "Israel perceives the present deal as a bad one," and pointed out that it is "preparing for various scenarios."
Amir Bohbot, a military affairs commentator for the Israeli Wallah website, said that "Israel will not sit in the audience amid the developments in the negotiations between Iran and the United States over the nuclear deal."
Bohbot added that a conflict might soon begin between the United States and "Israel" over the issue and even if they try to keep it behind the scenes, it will appear to the public.
According to Bohbot, "the Iranians are cleverly leading the Americans by the nose," which does not make the United States militarily reliable, he added.
