Israel's Liberman in US for talks on Iran expansion, specially in Syria

Avigdor Liberman


Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has headed to the US for talks with US officials that are expected to focus on Iranian expansionist agenda in the Middle East, reports say Wednesday.


In a statement, Israeli foreign ministry announced the Israeli minister would meet his US counterpart James Mattis, National Security Adviser John Bolton and a number of senators.


The statement confirmed the talks would pay a special attention to the Iranian intervention in Syria.


Recently, Israeli warplanes attacked Iranian airbases in Syria, killing a number of Iranian officers. Iran's prominent figures have repeatedly threatened to retaliate for the strikes. 


Analysts say the visit would also tackle the 2015 nuclear deal.


US President Donald Trump has set May 12 as a deadline to decide on the fate of the deal. Tehran is accused of violating it.
