Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs plans to give Persian lessons to its diplomats in 2015. The Israeli news channel i24news, which airs its programs in Arabic, English and French, announced the news on December 26, adding that halting Iran’s nuclear program through diplomatic channels and teaching Persian to its diplomats are among the foreign ministry’s plans for 2015.

Iran’s foreign ministry said earlier this week that a comprehensive deal with the world powers over the nuclear disputes is within reach.

In November, the negotiation period was extended to July 1, 2015.

Benjamin Netanyahu has said that any deal must guarantee that Iran’s ability to build a nuclear bomb is completely nullified. Iran has maintained all along that it is not interested in making nuclear bombs and its nuclear program is completely peaceful.
