Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said the Zionist entity would prefer that the US and other powers walk away from nuclear talks with Iran rather than pursue a “bad deal.”
In comments published Thursday by The New York Times Lapid the best case scenario was what he called a “good deal”.
“We have no problem with a deal. A good deal is a good thing,” Lapid said, appearing to give rare backing to negotiations on reviving the 2015 nuclear pact.
“Second best would be no deal but tightening the sanctions and making sure Iran cannot go forward. And the third and worst is a bad deal,” he added.
Talks to revive the deal will resume on Monday, the EU diplomat chairing the negotiations said on Thursday, urging a “picking up of the pace.”
Negotiations restarted in November after a five-month hiatus to try to restore the deal, which offered Iran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
