Nuclear talks show US shift from Israel on Iran: Analyst

The recent nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers signal a shift in the United States’ policy on Iran, with Washington distancing itself from Israel’s scenario against the Islamic Republic, a political analyst tells Press TV.

“I think that the meeting really is an indicator that a new chapter has begun and that we are going to see now the United States backing away from the Israeli scripted dialogue concerning Iran and her nuclear… program,” said Mark Glenn on Friday.

He noted that the speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly and the active participation of US Secretary of State John Kerry in the course of the Thursday nuclear talks with Iran has infuriated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The foreign ministers of Iran, Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States, and Germany held talks at the United Nations headquarters in New York on Thursday.

The participants at the meeting have expressed satisfaction over the results of the talks.

Iran and the six world powers have held several rounds of talks on a range of issues, with the main focus being on Tehran’s nuclear energy program. The two sides wrapped up their latest round of negotiations in April in the Kazakh city of Almaty.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran has categorically rejected the allegation, stressing that as a committed member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
