Officials in the incoming Biden administration have already began holding quiet talks with Iran on a return to the 2015 nuclear deal, and have updated Israel on those conversations, Channel 12 News reports.

The network gives no sourcing for the report, and no details on what was allegedly discussed.

Joe Biden has indicated his desire to return to the defunct accord, while Israel is pushing for any return to the deal to include fresh limitations on Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional destabilizing actions.
