(AP) — Israel’s prime minister says he doesn’t oppose a “good” nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. Naftali Bennett spoke on Tuesday, a day after negotiators from Iran and five world powers resumed talks on restoring Tehran’s tattered 2015 nuclear deal. Bennett voiced skepticism in an interview with Israeli Army Radio that the negotiations would produce a deal acceptable to Israel. He reiterated that Israel was not bound by any accord, leaving it room to maneuver militarily. Israel says it wants an improved deal that places tighter restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program. It wants any deal to address Iran’s long-range missile program and its support for hostile proxies along Israel’s borders.
