Netanyahu Slams Iran Nuclear Talks, Calls for 'Better Deal'

The Israeli prime minister stepped up his stance against the ongoing talks.

"A better deal would significantly roll back Iran's nuclear infrastructure," Netanyahu said in a statement on Wednesday, "A better deal would link the eventual lifting of the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program to a change in Iran's behavior."

Iran’s foreign minister, speaking Tuesday, said the negotiations have been productive.

"We've accomplished quite a bit, but people needed to get some rest and start over early in the morning," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said. "And I hope we can finalize the work on Wednesday -- and hopefully begin the process of drafting."
