Senior US official to travel to Israel to discuss Iran deal

A senior US Treasury official will travel to Israel this week to discuss the nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers with senior Israeli officials, the Treasury Department said on Thursday.

Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin will travel to Israel from Friday through Monday, the Treasury said in a statement. It will be his first visit there since the nuclear deal was signed in July.

While in Israel, Szubin will discuss details of the nuclear deal and “emphasise the United States’ commitment to increasing cooperation with Israel to combat Iran’s support for terrorism and other destabilising activity in the region,” the Treasury said.
