Prime Minister Naftali Bennett intends to present US President Joe Biden with a plan to halt a nuclear Iran when the two hold their first meeting together in the White House later this week. “We will present an orderly plan that we have formulated in the past two months to curb the Iranians, both in the nuclear sphere and vis-à-vis regional aggression,” Bennett told the government at its weekly meeting on Sunday.

The Biden administration is at odds with Israel over the best way to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power. Biden has sought a return to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that the Trump administration exited in 2018. Israel always opposed the deal, which it claimed only emboldened the Islamic Republic.

Ahead of US visit, Bennett says he’ll tell Biden Iran deal ‘no longer relevant’
Prime minister tells cabinet ministers he will present US president with ‘an orderly plan’ to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and regional aggression

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Sunday that he will work to convince US President Joe Biden to abandon his plan to reenter the Iran nuclear deal, as he readied for his first trip to Washington as premier later this week. In a planned Thursday meeting with Biden, Bennett said, he will present “an orderly plan that we have formulated in the past two months to curb the Iranians, both in the nuclear sphere and vis-à-vis regional aggression.”

“I will tell President Biden that it is time to stop the Iranians, to stop this thing, not to give them a lifeline in the form of reentering into an expired nuclear deal,” said Bennett at the start of the cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on Sunday morning. “[The deal] is no longer relevant, even by the standards of those who once thought that it was.” Bennett is slated to depart Israel on Tuesday afternoon and meet with Biden at the White House on Thursday before returning home that evening. It will be Bennett’s first official overseas visit, and the first time Biden meets an Israeli prime minister since he took office earlier this year.

Despite the ongoing COVID crisis in Israel, “the timing of the visit is very important because we are at a critical point regarding Iran,” Bennett said Sunday.
