Blinken: Nuclear deal the best way to cap Iran nuclear activity

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Washington will work together with Israel to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, as the two close allies acknowledged differences over negotiations with Tehran.
Blinken made the comments in Jerusalem alongside his Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid, who told reporters Israel had “disagreements” with Washington about a possible deal to revive the 2015 nuclear accord with Tehran.
After a raft of Israeli government meetings, Blinken also met with Palestinian president in Ramallah in the Occupied West Bank.
Last year, Blinken committed to reopening the (Palestinian-facing) US consulate for Palestinians in east Jerusalem - so far it hasn’t happened.
