Netanyahu setting up task force to engage with Biden on Iran deal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is setting up a special task force to hammer out an Israeli strategy for talks with the Biden administration on the Iran nuclear deal, according to the Walla news site.

The panel will include representatives from the National Security Council, Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry, IDF, Mossad intelligence agency and the Atomic Energy Commission, the report says.

Biden is expected to seek to return to the Iran nuclear deal, a move opposed by Israel, which maintains a new deal must be negotiated to also rein in Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional aggression.
