JERUSALEM – Israel’s top security adviser plans to go to Washington to discuss a comprehensive nuclear deal that the United States and five other powers hope to negotiate with Iran, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.

Netanyahu, who described Sunday’s interim nuclear deal with Iran as a “historic mistake”, fears that lifting sanctions will make it easier for Tehran to pursue a covert nuclear weapons program.

“I spoke last night with President (Barack) Obama. We agreed that in the coming days an Israeli team led by the national security adviser, Yossi Cohen, will go out to discuss with the United States the permanent accord with Iran,” Netanyahu said in public remarks to members of his Likud party.

“This accord must bring about one outcome: the dismantling of Iran’s military nuclear capability,” he added.

The U.S. readiness to talk with Tehran, after decades of mistrust, has angered some people in Israel, who said it was a form of appeasement. But supporters of the deal say it will encourage Iran to be more open about its true nuclear aims, which it says are peaceful.
