Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will send Israel’s Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen to Washington next month to meet with US President Joe Biden in order to set Tel Aviv’s demands for reforming Iran’s nuclear deal, the Times of Israel reported yesterday.

According to the Israeli newspaper, Israeli TV Channel 12 broke the news on Saturday night, adding that Cohen, a trusted Netanyahu ally, would be the first senior Israeli official to meet with Biden and the chief of the CIA.

Israel is afraid that reviving Iran’s nuclear deal would help it enrich uranium and relieve its economy, the Israeli newspaper said.

Channel 12 reported that Cohen will present Israel’s demands to Biden, which are: Iran must halt the enrichment of uranium, stop producing advanced centrifuges and cease supporting terror groups, foremost Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

The demands also include ending Iran’s military presence in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, stopping “terror” activities against Israeli targets overseas and granting full access to the IAEA on all aspects of its nuclear programme.

Head of CENTCOM terrorists repeats US' anti-Iran claims

Frank Kenneth McKenzie, head of the United States Central Command, a terrorist organization known as CENTCOM, claimed that relations between Washington and Tehran were at an “opportune moment” with the inauguration of the administration of new US President Joe Biden.

Relations between the United States and Iran are in a “period of opportunity” following the inauguration of President Joe Biden, the top US military commander in the Middle East said during his first swing into the region under the new administration.

McKenzie claimed that there were “heightened threat streams” from Iran during the months leading up to Biden’s election and inauguration, but the United States was able to maintain what he has long-termed a “contested deterrence” during what has become increasingly clear was an unnerving and unpredictable moment, Defense One reported.

Continuing his claims and accusations, he said not only did Iran not strike any US targets directly, as some security and military analysts had worried it might do in the waning days of former President Donald Trump’s tenure, but Iran was also largely able to manage its actors in Iraq and elsewhere in the region, but not all of those groups operate under direct command and control from Tehran.

This is McKenzie’s first visit to the West Asian region under the new US administration to implement Trump’s order to add the Zionist regime and occupied Palestine to CENTCOM.
