Iranian FM on Facebook Accuses Israel of Seeking to Undermine Talks
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.
