Israel to send envoy to U.S. to discuss Iran deal

JERUSALEM — Israelís prime minister says he will dispatch a top envoy to the United States in the coming days to discuss a final nuclear deal with Iran.

Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that, following a conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama, the two leaders agreed that an Israeli team led by National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen would meet with American officials.

Israel has harshly criticized the deal Western powers reached with Iran this weekend, saying it lessened pressure on the Islamic Republic without anything significant in return.

Under the deal, Iran will curb many nuclear activities for six months in exchange for limited relief from sanctions. Itís the first stage of what is hoped to be a final deal ensuring that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons.
