CIA Chief Visits ‘Israeli’-occupied Territories
By Staff, Agencies
CIA director William J. Burns will arrive for a visit to the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories on Tuesday to meet with top Zionist officials, the Axios news site reported Monday.
Burns is expected to meet with the Zionist Prime Minister Naftali Bennet, new Mossad chief David Barnea, who assumed office two months ago, and senior intelligence and military officials, the report added.
Iran's nuclear program is believed to be at the center of the talks, as well as US strategy toward the new Iranian government and a potential return to the tattered nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, the report stated.
Burns was Deputy Secretary of State and an ambassador, serving as a diplomat for over 30 years and is regarded as one of the most respected voices on foreign policy issues for decades.
Burns was the Obama administration’s first lead negotiator in the talks leading to the Iranian accord in 2015, prior to being replaced by Wendy Sherman – Biden’s nominee for deputy Secretary of State. For his part, Burns has long argued that the nuclear deal actually makes the ‘Israeli’ entity safer.
