Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Monday told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee (FADC) that Iran’s negotiating posture at the nuclear talks in Vienna is weak and that the world powers can halt both its nuclear and regional terror activities if they draw a clear line in the sand. “The internal situation in Iran leaves lots of opportunities for the world. It is not a real power. It’s citizens are suffering... the heads of Iran know their [weak] situation,” he said.

Gantz continued, “Iran arrived at the talks in Vienna without substantial cards to play. They want to play for time” to convince the West to agree to a deal with fewer nuclear limits and with less pressure from sanctions on their economy. The defense minister said that the US and the world powers “can stop Iran’s nuclear progress and in general” with its regional terror. In addition, he referenced his recent talks in Washington with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken as well as an expected meeting this week in Israel with US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan – calling them all “strong friends of Israel.”
