Top US negotiator in Iranian nuclear talks visiting Israel
JERUSALEM (AP) ' The United States' top negotiator in Iran nuclear talks is visiting Israel to consult on regional issues, the U.S. State Department said Friday.
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman will "reaffirm our unshakeable commitment to Israel's security," according to a department statement.
Sherman arrived Friday morning, according to U.S. Embassy spokesman Kurt Hoyer.
Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., met in Baghdad this week to discuss halting Iran's nuclear program.
The U.S. has gradually tempered its demands for an immediate and complete halt to Iran's ability to make nuclear fuel, which the West and allies fear could provide the foundations of warhead-grade material. Iran denies it seeks atomic arms.
Israel has criticized the talks as an Iranian stalling tactic.
