Rafael Grossi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, lands in Israel, the Israeli prime minister’s office says.

Grossi is slated to meet tomorrow with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

His visit comes as nuclear talks with Iran in Vienna have been stalled for months, and observers say it appears unlikely that any agreement will be reached. Tehran has demanded that the US delist the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, something Washington has refused to do.

On Tuesday, Bennett unveiled what he said was proof that Iranian intelligence spied on the IAEA in order to better cover up its rogue nuclear activities.
