U.S. Envoy Jets to Israel Over Iran Talks

Straight after P5 +1 talks over Iran’s nuclear program in Baghdad, the head of the U.S. negotiating team, Wendy Sherman, traveled to Israel to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his advisers on Friday.

Sherman will update Israeli officials on the talks in Baghdad, and on preparations for the third round of talks in Moscow on June 18 and 19.

Sherman, who is undersecretary of state for political affairs, will also discuss broader bilateral and regional issues with senior Israeli officials during her visit, the State Department said in a statement on Thursday.

Sherman will also “reaffirm our unshakable commitment to Israel’s security,” the statement said without mentioning the just-concluded Iran talks in Baghdad.

Israel regards Iran’s nuclear aspirations as a threat given its calls for the demise of the Zionist regime and has hinted at a potential pre-emptive military strike.
