Biden, the president of Israel discuss the Iranian nuclear threat

Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog said in statements shortly before a bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden at the White House today, Wednesday, that he intends to discuss Iran’s issues, including the nuclear threat it poses.

Herzog accused the Iranians of supplying Russia with weapons used to kill Ukrainians.

Today, Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian announced that the United States is still sending messages to his country about reaching a nuclear deal.

“However, we are not abandoning our red lines,” Abdullahian said, quoted by Al-Alam TV.

Abdullahian added that his country rejects Europe’s “allegations” that Russia has used Iranian drones and asked Ukraine to present its prove in Tehran.

US President Biden faces growing demands from Iranian activists and even the former Crown Prince of the Shah to openly support regime change in Iran, as the country’s rulers face a wave of massive protests.

But Biden and his aides aren’t ready to go that far. Instead, the administration is plotting one via out of the way to support and help Iranian protesters by loosening and imposing some sanctions, but this is not an all-out campaign of pressure to isolate the Iranian government, abandon nuclear talks with the Iranian government, or even overthrow the regime, according to six US officials who know the story and who have reported the case to the “Politco” website.

For its part, the United States affirmed on Tuesday its commitment to Israel’s security and to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

The US State Department said in a statement that Washington also affirmed, at a meeting of the joint US-Israel political and military group, its support for “Israel’s ability to deal with any current and future threats”.

The US State Department added that the two sides focused during the meeting on cooperation against “Iran’s nuclear and regional threats”.
