It took 18 months of negotiations and 8 days of full immersion for Iran and the 5+1 (USA, China, Russia, France, England and Germany) with Federica Mogherini (head of EU diplomacy) as mediator to reach an agreement on nuclear.
“There have been enough progress on key parameters, therefore now it is possible to continue negotiations thanks to the solutions found until the 30 June,” said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Teheran, Mohammad Jawad Zarif. The Israeli Premier showed his disapproval describing it as a “historic mistake” because it legitimates the Islamic Republic and increases Iranian “aggression and terror”.
The day after the meeting in Losanna, Netanyahu called a meeting with the security cabinet to evaluate the possible outcome of the agreement. At noon, the Israeli Premieres going to speak with soldiers and intelligence, and with the Ministers of interior, Defense and Foreign Affairs. The leader of Likud gave an angry call to the US President to express his worries about the agreement between Iran and the 5+1 group because it could “menace the surviving of his country”. Nevertheless Obama restated that the “USA will keep their word on Israeli security”.
