Former Ambassador joins State Department's Iran team

Former US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro has joined the State Department’s Iran team as a senior adviser, a senior State Department official told Barak Ravid of Axios on Sunday.

The appointment is significant given that Israel is pressing the Biden administration to start discussing a “Plan B” in case diplomacy with Iran fails. Shapiro, who has a personal relationship with many Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, is equipped to play a key role in any such talks.
