Ex-US ambassador: Netanyahu announcement on Iran ‘fully coordinated’ with US

Former US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “significant development” regarding the Iran nuclear deal that he will reveal in a speech this evening has been coordinated with the US.

“Obviously, Netanyahu’s announcement tonight on the Iranian nuclear program is fully coordinated with the US side. The call with Trump yesterday and Pompeo’s visit would have locked it in,” he posts on Twitter.

According Israeli news reports, Netanyahu will reveal intelligence information, based on a large cache of documents recently obtained by Israel, which he believes proves Iran has duped the world regarding the state of its nuclear program.
