US, European powers to continue Iran talks this week

Flash90Naftali Bennett and Benjamin Netanyahu

During the meeting, the U.S. president allegedly said that until now, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the three European Union signatories to the deal, only proposed "cosmetic changes" that he did not find satisfactory, the Axios news website reported.

The report cited unnamed Israeli officials as saying that Trump vowed to pull out of the deal unless European partners met the US's demands.

"The conversation lasted an hour longer than was allocated for it. I told him what I thought: That the nuclear agreement with Iran must be either totally fixed or totally canceled, and there were detailed discussions on this issue", he said.

Netanyahu reportedly referred to Saudi Arabia, which is in talks to buy nuclear reactors from the US.

The Iran nuclear deal was agreed to during the Obama administration.

Trump has said that he will allow for the reimposition of nuclear-related sanctions on Iran upon a mid-May waiver deadline unless Europe agrees to some form of renegotiation.

The move is the latest in a series of measures by Washington aimed at dealing with one of the greatest diplomatic hurdles before Donald Trump's administration, to contain the regime in Iran while keeping up to America's worldwide commitments within the JCPOA.

Netanyahu and Trump's meeting on Monday was their fifth over the past year.
