APIAC Puppet John Kerry reassures Netanyahu over Iran


US Secretary of State John Kerry has reassured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is fiercely opposed to diplomacy with Iran, about ongoing nuclear negotiations.
"We do welcome the change of rhetoric, the change of tone, the diplomatic opening that the Iranians have offered," Kerry said when he was meeting with Netanyahu in the Italian capital city of Rome on Wednesday.
"We are adamant that words are no substitute for actions,” he added. 
The top US diplomat said the United States is pursuing “a diplomatic initiative with eyes wide open." 
"We will need to know that actions are being taken which make it crystal clear, undeniably clear, failsafe to the world that whatever program is pursued is indeed a peaceful program," Kerry said. 
The United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany held nuclear talks with Iran in Geneva earlier this month. The two sides are set to meet again in Geneva on November 7-8. 

Kerry said that meanwhile the Obama administration will not let up its pressure on Iran.
"No deal is better than a bad deal," he said.
"But if this can be solved satisfactorily, diplomatically, it is clearly better for everyone."
The hawkish Israeli premier, who has found himself increasingly isolated as the world powers are engaged in negotiations with Iran, reiterated his accusations against Tehran.
"Iran must not have a nuclear weapons capability, which means that they shouldn't have centrifuges (for) enrichment, they shouldn't have a plutonium heavy-water plant, which is used only for nuclear weapons," Netanyahu said.
"They should get rid of fissile material, and they shouldn't have underground nuclear facilities, (which are) underground for one reason - for military purposes," he added. 
Netanyahu is deeply concerned about the easing of tensions between Iran and the United States following a phone conversation between US President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that became the first direct communication between the presidents of the two countries since Iran's Islamic Revolution of 1979. 

The Israeli prime minister has repeatedly called on Washington to toughen sanctions and the language of military threat until Tehran dismantles is uranium enrichment program.
