Netanyahu heads to Europe seeking about-face on Iran

Netanyahu heads to Europe seeking about-face on IranIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu embarks Monday on a three-day European tour in Germany set to be dominated by strategic differences on Iran, as leaders attempt to rescue the nuclear deal after US withdrawal. With partners in Berlin, Paris and London still reeling from President Donald Trump’s decision last month to exit the hard-fought 2015 accord, Netanyahu is expected to seek European cooperation on a still-to-be-determined Plan B. “The aim to prevent Iran from developing any kind of nuclear capacity was always the foundation of international policy on Iran,” Israel’s ambassador to Germany, Jeremy Issacharoff, told AFP ahead of the visit.
