Israel + Turkey to normalize diplomatic ties

Israel and Turkey agreed to resume full diplomatic ties in a phone call between the two nations’ leaders yesterday, according to Bloomberg.

Iran wants guarantees before rejoining the nuclear pact: Iran isn’t dropping its demands for the US to make guarantees that Western companies investing in the country would be protected if Washington pulls out of the pact again, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing statements from Iran’s negotiating team. Iran made the demands in a response on Monday to the EU’s final revised draft of the pact, which the EU is now “studying,” the Financial Times reported Tuesday. An EU official last week rejected the idea of reconvening talks between the two sides again, saying that Tehran and Washington need to make a final decision on the draft text.
