Whether Israel likes it or not, the US and Iran are resuming negotiations on Friday.

The United States and Iran will resume talks on Friday to try and restore trust and salvage the Iran nuclear deal, i24 News reports.

Initial talks in Vienna on Thursday with the US and world powers to rescue the deal were a “success,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told a Cabinet meeting in Tehran.

Mossad chief Yossi Cohen will be traveling to Washington in the coming days to meet with top American officials on the issue.
