Despite repeated Israeli statements against the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers, US administration officials said Tuesday that Israel does not wish for the deal to be canceled.

According to Reuters, the majority of US President Donald Trump's national security team is also in favor of preserving the agreement. For this reason, Trump's top advisors recently developed a more aggressive strategy to ensure Iran's compliance with it.

This proposal was reportedly presented to Trump on Friday and could be formally announced by the end of September.

Following these reports, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clarified Tuesday that Israel's position is that the deal "is bad and needs to be amended or canceled."
