• Netanyahu win has no impact on Iran nuclear talks


    WASHINGTON D.C.: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory in the Israeli election will not disrupt painstaking US efforts to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, the State Department said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). The Israeli leader opposes any accommodation with Tehran and came to Washington during the campaign to address US lawmakers and denounce the agreement under negotiation as a “bad deal.” “We’ve been long familiar with the views of the prime minister on Iran. We don’t think that his win has impacted the Iran negotiations, or will,” said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
