In a shift of tone from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's scepticism, a senior Israeli intelligence officer said on Monday that Iran is negotiating seriously on a deal to curb its disputed nuclear program. Brigadier-General Itai Brun, Israel's military intelligence's chief analyst, told a strategic forum that Iran was honoring a November interim agreement. Netanyahu had condemned easing sanctions on Israel's arch-enemy as an "historic mistake." With the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany now stepping up contacts with Iran, ahead of their self-declared July 20th deadline for a final accord, Brun voiced cautious optimism.
