Netanyahu to speak on ‘significant development’ on Iran nuclear deal

Jerusalem (AFP) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak Monday on a “significant development” on the Iran nuclear deal, his office said, as the White House considers whether to pull out of the landmark accord that Israel opposes.

Netanyahu will give the statement at Israel’s defence ministry in Tel Aviv at 8:00 pm (1700 GMT). It follows US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit on Sunday and a telephone conversation between Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump on Saturday.
