Israel’s military Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi has warned the Pentagon about the dangers of the US re-entering the current nuclear agreement.
Kohavi is in the US this week for high-level meetings. He and other senior Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officers met with the US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley, US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin and US military officials.
The meetings focused on shared challenges facing the American and Israeli militaries, including those posed by Iran and Iranian entrenchment throughout the Middle East.
Kohavi “emphasized the shortcomings of the current nuclear agreement that will allow Iran to make significant progress related to centrifuges as well as to substantially enhance the amount and quality of enriched matter over the next few years, also emphasizing the lack of supervision in terms of nuclear proliferation,” according to a statement from the IDF.
“The Chief of the General Staff explained the threat created by returning to the original nuclear agreement and emphasized that all measures should be taken to prevent Iran from achieving military nuclear capabilities,” it said.
