US not concerned with Lapid's stance on nuclear deal: Israeli media
Israeli media say that the administration of US President Joe Biden "does not take into account" the current Israeli occupation government regarding the Iranian nuclear deal file.
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 journalist Yinon Magal said on his Twitter account that "Prime Minister Yair Lapid asked to speak with US President Joe Biden, and the answer he received was that the president is on vacation."
Magal added that Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz "flew quickly to Washington, but the United States gave the answer to Iran (about the nuclear agreement)," and continued, "In short, the Biden administration does not take into account this government."
Israeli media also said that "Republicans in the United States are sending signals that they will try to sabotage the nuclear agreement with Iran."
The United States confirmed today that it had sent its response to Iran's proposals to revive the nuclear agreement through European Union mediators.
In response, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani announced on Wednesday that Iran has received the United States' response to its proposals through the European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.
"We have started a careful review and evaluation of the US response, and the Islamic Republic will announce its views after looking into it," Kanaani said.
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.
On August 18, the Israeli occupation's government on sent a message to the Biden administration saying that the EU draft resolution on the Iran nuclear deal crossed the red lines set by the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
"Lapid's message comes amid a feeling in the Israeli government that President Biden and senior White House officials are not fully aware of the concessions that were included in the new draft EU agreement granted to Iran," Walla! reported.
