BREAKING: US to halt updates to Israel on Iran nuclear talks in response to Benjamin Netanyahu speech plans
The United States will no longer provide regular updates to the Israeli government on the status of the P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran, Channel 2 reported on Sunday.
The move is the Obama administration’s response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plans to appear before a joint session of Congress, during which he is expected to discuss sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
Channel 2 reported that the White House is incensed over the Israeli government’s conduct in recent weeks regarding the Iranian issue, believing that Jerusalem has taken a sensitive issue with implications for national security and used it for political gain.
Channel 2 reports says US has stopped updating Israel about developments in nuclear negotiations with Iran in response to Netanyahu’s planned Congress speech, after Boehner admits he failed to tell administration he had invited PM.
