The top U.S. negotiator in international talks with Iran arrived in Israel today to brief that country’s leaders.

Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman will “reaffirm our unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security,” according to a department statement, the Associated Press reported.

The visit comes after Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., met in Baghdad this week to discuss halting Iran’s nuclear program.

Israel has consistently criticized Iran for stalling in the talks, which Jerusalem believes is buying more time for Iran’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.

The next round of talks will be held in Moscow, June 17-19.
