Despite recent US and Israeli war rhetoric against Iran’s nuclear energy program, a US intelligence official has announced the consensus of Washington and Tel Aviv over the peaceful nature of Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

“There is not a lot of dispute between the US and Israeli intelligence communities on the facts” that Iran has not deviated from its peaceful nuclear program, The New York Times quoted the unnamed former top US intelligence official as saying on Sunday.

The former US official added that Israel’s intelligence agency “Mossad does not disagree with the US” that Iran does not pursue military objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Earlier on February 23, the Los Angeles Times reported of the agreement between 16 US intelligence agencies that Tehran was not seeking to build nuclear weapons.

The “highly classified” intelligence assessment was reportedly circulated among US policymakers early last year.

Iran is a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). So, it is entitled to use nuclear technology for peaceful use.
