Report: Israel Warns US Not to Settle for ‘Partial’ Nuclear Deal With Iran

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Israel is warning the US not to strike a “partial” nuclear deal with Iran. Israeli officials said they feared the US was setting up for a “less-for-less” agreement that would require Iran to reverse some of its nuclear activity in exchange for some sanctions relief.

Last week, reports said National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan floated the idea of an interim Iran nuclear deal in conversations with his Israeli counterpart, Eyal Hulata. US officials told the journal that the idea of a “less-for-less” deal was just “brainstorming” ahead of the new round of JCPOA talks that are set to start on November 29th.

There is a precedent for such a deal with Iran. In 2013, Iran agreed to stop enriching uranium at 20 percent in exchange for limited sanctions relief while the JCPOA was being negotiated. Earlier this year, in response to an Israeli covert attack, Iran began enriching some uranium at 60 percent, which is still lower than the 90 percent needed for weapons-grade. The JCPOA limited Iran’s enrichment to 3.67.
