Report: US Floats Idea for Interim Iran Deal to Israel

According to a report to Axios, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan floated the idea for an interim Iran nuclear deal to buy more time for negotiations in recent conversations with his Israeli counterpart, Eyal Hulata.

Sullivan said Iran could freeze certain nuclear activity, such as enriching some uranium at 60 percent, and in exchange, the US would release some Iranian funds or provide sanctions waivers for humanitarian goods. But the report stressed that Sullivan was just “brainstorming” and the idea was “only preliminary.”

The report said Hulata didn’t like Sullivan’s idea and stressed that Israel fears an interim deal could become permanent. It’s not clear how Iran would respond to the proposal, but with JCPOA negotiations resuming on November 29th, the US will have a chance to put it on the table.
