The European Union's foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell admitted yesterday, Sept. 5, that an agreement on a return to the Iran nuclear deal might not be reached as soon as he thought just last week. Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said today it is still too early to know whether Israel had managed to thwart the efforts to revive the pact.
On a visit to the Nevatim airbase, Lapid said, “If Iran keeps trying, it will discover Israel's long arm and capabilities. We will continue to act on all fronts against terrorism and against those who seek to harm us. As President [Joe] Biden and I agreed, we have full discretion to do whatever we deem appropriate to prevent the possibility of Iran becoming a nuclear threat.”
