The clock is ticking, which is increasing the need for closer cooperation with our allies and friends in frustrating Tehran’s aspirations, read the article by Foreign Ministry leaders.
According to the Telegraph, Israel and Britain are due to sign on Monday a ten-year cooperation agreement covering cyber security, technology, trade and security issues.
In their article, Lapid and Truss stressed that by agreement, Israel would be Britain’s first cyber security partner in a world becoming increasingly vulnerable to such threats.
Coincidentally, Israeli Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett on Sunday said it was “very worrying” that the major powers were considering suspending sanctions against the Iranian regime in exchange for an unsatisfactory ban on its nuclear program. The Prime Minister reiterated that talks to revive the so-called nuclear deal under the auspices of the United Nations are scheduled to resume in Vienna on Monday.
In 2015, after more than ten years of negotiations, Iran and the world’s leading powers – the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia – agreed to the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. Under the agreement, Tehran restricts its nuclear activities, and in return, the international community lifts most of its sanctions on Iran. Former US President Donald Trump, on the other hand, unilaterally withdrew the United States from the nuclear deal in 2018 and later lifted previous sanctions, prompting Iran to produce more uranium than allowed.
Negotiations to revive the nuclear deal began in Vienna in April, but stalled after Ibrahim Rice became president of Iran.
