Israel’s Lapid Urges White House to Consider ‘Plan B’ on Iran
A parade of Israeli military, intelligence and political officials have made their way to Washington since US President Joe Biden took office. All have tried to change administration officials’ minds about negotiating with Iran on a return to the nuclear accord from which the Donald Trump White House withdrew. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid tried a different tact. Visiting the American capital this week, he put the focus on coordinating on a “plan B.” Lapid’s logic is that it is obvious that the Iranians have simply been stalling for time as they continue developing their nuclear program. And for the first time, even those American officials most gung-ho about pursuing a diplomatic resolution acknowledged during Lapid’s time in Washington that, in essence, it is time to develop a cohesive, coherent plan B. The Media Line’s Mike Wagenheim has the whole story.
