Lloyd Austin to meet with Netanyahu, Gantz, as Washington engages in talks to revive nuke agreement and Tehran inaugurates new centrifuges, amid rising tensions in the region surrounding Iran’s nuclear activities and a possible revival of the 2015 nuclear accord — a deal Israel, under the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has vehemently opposed. The two-day visit to Israel is part of a larger trip to also meet with leaders in Germany, Britain and the NATO headquarters in Belgium in the coming week for talks with government and military officials. The talks broke for the weekend on Friday with a senior US official suggesting the US and Iran may be at an impasse over Tehran’s demands to lift all sanctions imposed under the Trump administration since 2017.
