( An Iranian official said the country isn’t moved by the result of the Israeli election, in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party soundly defeated Isaac Herzog’s Zionist Union.

“For us there is no difference between the Zionist regime’s political parties. They are all aggressors in nature,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marizeh Afkham told reporters in Tehran, Mehr News Agency reported.

Netanyahu has been a vocal critic of the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 powers, arguing that a “bad deal” would threaten Israel’s survival. March 31 marks a deadline for a “political framework agreement” in the nuclear talks.
