EU Envoy Tries to Bridge Gap Between Israel, World on Iran Deal

The new European Union ambassador-designate to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, on Monday sought to reassure the Israelis over a nuclear deal struck with Iran, AFP reports.

"We very much have Israel's security at heart," Faaborg-Andersen told a meeting of EU ambassadors with Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz in Jerusalem.

Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program for the next six months in exchange for limited sanctions relief following marathon talks with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany in Geneva that ended Sunday.
