CIA Chief's First Trip To Israel Will Focus On Iran Standoff

CIA director Bill Burns is arriving in Israel Tuesday in his first trip to the region since taking office to discuss with Israeli counterparts the growing standoff with Iran, especially after in the past two weeks Tehran is believed behind two attacks on foreign tankers in the Gulf region.

Burns is further expected to engage the Israelis on the Iran nuclear issue. Tel Aviv has consistently argued for halting Vienna JCPOA talks, which are currently stalled prior to the seventh round of negotiations which may not pick up again until September, arguing that it's simply buying more time for the Iranians to pursue a bomb.
