In light of European fears of the inability to revive the controls over the Iranian nuclear file, a spokesman for the Israeli Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, announced today, Tuesday, that the latter spoke with the new German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, and discussed with him the importance of efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring weapons nuclear.
The spokesman, Ofir Gendelman, added in a statement that the two sides stressed the importance of the relationship between Israel and Germany, and agreed to continue cooperation in the economic, political and security fields.
Over the past weeks, Tel Aviv has repeatedly called for the international community to confront Tehran and its destabilizing activities in the region, speaking of Iranian plans to target it.
Also, Bennett last week called on world powers to pressure Tehran to halt enrichment before resuming another round of Vienna talks aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, from which the previous US administration headed by Donald Trump withdrew in 2018.
In turn, the Israeli Defense Minister stressed more than once that his country is developing plans to confront any Iranian action that might affect the country, or threaten its security, directly or through proxies, in reference to the militias backed by Tehran in Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.
It is noteworthy that since the start of the nuclear talks in Vienna, in order to revive the “Joint Action Agreement”, Israeli officials have held several meetings with officials in Washington, in order to emphasize the need to be tough in dealing with the Iranian file, especially since Tel Aviv believes that Tehran has become Just around the corner from building the atomic bomb.
