Iran is taking to social media to counter what it claims are Israeli attempts to stymie the current ongoing talks with the West over its nuclear program.

The Islamic Republic’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif posted on his Facebook page on Friday that “there is a high possibility the talks would be disturbed through various efforts” on the part of Israel.

Zarif says this reflects Israel’s “frustration and warmongering.”

Iran met Tuesday with world powers in Geneva in what one U.S. official described as “intense” and “candid” negotiations to discuss its nuclear program,

Israel has publicly expressed its skepticism over the talks, and Iran’s recent efforts at diplomacy, and doubts that they are genuine reflections of a friendlier foreign policy. A new poll suggests that the Israeli public also remains hesitant in altering its assessment of the Islamic Republic.

    Why bother the two sides ares far apart to a final deal, if the US wants to talk it is best let them talk. Iran many in Iran would like a reason an excuse for talks to fail. So all of a sudden spy rings are uncovered and a hit occurs, no doubt by the MEK acting alone (they have most to lose from any deal) or acting as a false flag for the regime itself. The fact is there has not been a lot of covert action, surveillance no doubt, anything heavier the facts speak for themselves. The fact is the US want it to stop at the end of Dagan’s term so they could conduct negotiations. However the enemy must know that he who is in charge has the will to carry out lethal action. So while the last hit upset the US it was important and required to provide the credentials of the new boss to the enemy or enemies. Since then everyone has behaved to allow the US agenda to take place unhindered.
