Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke with Secretary of State Antony Blinken about the nuclear talks being conducted between Iran and world powers in Vienna on Thursday, calling for world powers to immediately halt the talks.
Bennett stressed that Iran is conducting “nuclear blackmail” as a negotiation tactic and called on world powers to immediately halt the talks and take strict steps against Iran.
In response to Bennett’s call to halt negotiations, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said that “the negotiating teams for nuclear talks in Vienna will not receive instructions from Balfour.
