It is very easy to avoid a deadly disease like heart failure

Heart failure is a disease that kills millions of people worldwide every year.

In this disease, the heart is unable to supply blood to the body properly and gradually leads to death.

But it is up to you to avoid it and make it a habit to use just the right amount of water.

This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.

Research conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has found that adequate water intake can reduce the risk of heart failure.

Research has shown that the habit of drinking adequate amounts of water throughout one's life not only supports vital bodily functions but can also reduce the risk of future heart problems.

Researchers also say that the habit of drinking adequate amounts of water, like using salt, helps our heart and can reduce the risk of heart disease on a long-term basis.

The study examined data from more than 15,000 people between the ages of 45 and 66 who were part of a medical study from 1987 to 1989 and shared their medical details for the next 25 years.

The new study focused on how many people did not suffer from obesity, diabetes or heart failure at the beginning of the previous study and drank adequate amounts of water.

About 12,000 people in the previous study were included in the analysis, of whom 1336 were diagnosed with heart failure.

Researchers then analyzed the extent to which dehydration increases the risk of heart failure.

They found that drinking less water in middle age increased the risk of heart failure by 39% in later life.

Serum sodium levels were measured for dehydration, which increases when fluid levels in the body decrease.

The researchers said that a controlled trial was needed to confirm these findings, but preliminary evidence suggests that drinking adequate amounts of water may be helpful in preventing or slowing down the negative changes in the heart. Is.

"Serum sodium and water intake can be easily monitored and it may be easier for doctors to identify patients for whom drinking more water may be helpful," researchers said.

The results of the study were published in the medical journal European Heart Journal

iOS: This is why automatic updates arrive late

 One of the aspects that most distinguishes iOS from Android is undoubtedly the theme of updates . If for devices based on the Google operating system it is necessary to wait several weeks before a certain firmware is released for all products of the same family ( just follow the release of One UI 4.1 to notice it ), at Apple, things are very different, since all the company's smartphones are updated on the same day, at the same time, in all world markets. This, however, provided you manually search for the update .


Yes, because things change if you do not constantly follow the release of iOS updates and instead choose to let the system automatically install the new updates . In this case , the timing changes considerably and it often happens that updates are not notified even for several weeks after their official release. Why this difference in treatment? To give a definitive answer to the question is Craig Federighi , who - as reported by MacRumors - addressed the issue in an email sent to a particularly curious user.

In short, Federighi explained that the automatic update system generally takes between 1 and 4 weeks to download and install the latest version of the operating system and that this speed is directly related to the feedback Apple has received from the early adopters who have installed. the latest iOS build manually. In this way it is possible to slow down the diffusion of the firmware in order to counteract the possible spread of some critical bug present within it and thus avoid affecting all the iOS devices in circulation.

In short, the automatic system also has the task of protecting less experienced users from potential problems and this means that manual installation of the latest build is not always recommended. So if you are not particularly interested in having the latest update installed at the time of release, perhaps it is better to let iOS do the operation independently.

If you have developed belly, there's definitely something wrong


If you want to lose belly fat, you have to follow the same advice that is centuries old, that is, the perfect ratio of diet and exercise. Leave the rest where they are

Belly fat is a health problem. It not only makes your appearance look bad but it can be life threatening.

When the skin around the ribs stretches more than an inch, we call it belly fat. This fat also accumulates around our internal organs, liver and intestines.

The fat that accumulates around the vital internal organs of the abdomen affects health.

It is considered the most dangerous for health, but the good news is that it is not too difficult to reduce.

Health websites and TV commercials offer very simple fat loss solutions but the question is : do they work?

A team of 'Trust Me IMA Doctors' has done some experiments to find the answer.

The team formed four groups of 35 volunteers who were obese and at risk for type 3 diabetes and heart disease.

Frederick Carpe, Professor of Metrobolic Medicine at Oxford University, and Dylan K. Thompson, Professor of Bath University, conducted two separate experiments on two groups.

Thompson adopted two types of exercise, while Professor Carpe advised the two groups to take two different diets.

Thomson asked the first group of people to follow a regular diet and were given monitors to record their daily activities. They were also given some tips to increase their walking and healthy activities.

The other group was asked to try out the methods of health related websites.

The third group, under the supervision of Professor Carpe, was asked to drink three glasses of milk a day, another popular form of fat reduction. Research has shown that dairy products reduce fat.

The fourth group focused on food. All they were told was to take care of the food. They were told not to eat salty snacks in between meals. They were also told how to deal with the pain caused by hunger.

After six weeks, all participants were re-examined.

In the first group, it was found that the fat did not decrease but the health improved significantly. In the second group, the fat was reduced and the waist was also reduced by 2 cm, but there was no significant improvement in health and weight.

The health of the third group of milk drinkers did not change, although they were asked to take an extra 400 calories, but still did not gain weight.

The highest improvement was seen in the fourth group taking controlled diet. She lost an average of 3.7 kg per person and lost an average waist of 5 cm. Body fat decreased by 5% while internal organ fat decreased by 14%.

So the bottom line is that if you want to lose your belly fat, you have to follow the same centuries-old advice - the perfect balance between diet and exercise. Leave the rest where they are

Imran Khan loses majority in the parliament due the betrayal of MQM(Pakistan)


The United Opposition gave a big surprise to the government before the no-confidence motion, the main coalition party MQM (Pakistan) also left the government

The United Opposition and the MQM have signed an agreement. 

 The MQM has decided to support the no-confidence motion. Why MQM has left the government and joined the parties like PPP and PMLN which has always oppressed MQM in the past and never fulfilled their agreements made in different occasions. 

Now Imran Khan has only 164 members on his side and the united opposition has managed to get the support of 177 national assembly members.

New reports say that Opposition leaders arrived at Parliament Lodges last night and met with MQM leaders.

According to opposition sources, MQM will support the opposition in the no-confidence motion. Maulana Fazlur Rehman has also confirmed that the opposition has reached an agreement with the MQM, which will be formally announced today.

 Late last night, ruling party leaders Pervez Khattak and Shah Mehmood Qureshi also telephoned the MQM leadership.

According to the reports, a number of issues were settled between the MQM and the opposition on Tuesday night, after which the MQM assured the united opposition of its support in the no-confidence motion.

According to sources, the MQM has been assured that the amendment in the local body laws will be withdrawn and an MQM administrator will be appointed in Karachi and Hyderabad by Friday before the no-confidence vote. A dozen offices will be opened in Hyderabad.

MQM Pakistan leaders should know that neither PPP and nor PMLN honored any agreements made in the past. How can they trust them? 

PPP has totally ignored MQM and Karachi. If MQM leaders think PPP will hold local bodies elections and allow them to have their administrator and develop their constituencies they are sadly mistaken. 

 Meanwhile, the government will also withdraw false political cases against MQM workers in two to three days with the formation of a new government.

Moscow stops military activity in Kiev, Italy among the guarantors of peace

 First step towards understanding from the talks between the Russian and Ukrainian delegation in Turkey. Possible meeting between Putin and Zelensky

After more than a month of war it seems that the first concrete steps have finally been taken towards an understanding between Russia and Ukraine. The conditional is a must but it seems that the delegations of the two countries, which today resumed talks in Turkey, have reached an agreement in principle on some points. However, Moscow delegates will have to report to Putin, who has the last word. On the Ukrainian side, it is made clear that any possible agreement will be put to a referendum.

The points of understanding

The Russian presidential adviser, Vladimir Medinsky, at the end of the talks spoke of "concrete steps" and said that "Russia will stop military activities near Kiev and Chernikiv". Decision confirmed by the Deputy Minister of Defense, Alexander Fomin, also present in Turkey, "in order to increase mutual trust so that in the next rounds of negotiations a peace agreement can be agreed and signed".

For its part, Ukraine would agree not to join NATO, but reiterates that " the EU accession process cannot be blocked" . Ukraine has illustrated to Russia a new proposal of neutrality which foresees, among other things, the absence of foreign military bases on Ukrainian territory if Kiev receives adequate security guarantees. Great Britain, China, USA, Turkey, France, Canada, Italy, Poland and Israel could become guarantors.

The status of Crimea and Donbass will instead be the subject of ad hoc negotiations, additional to those of today.

The overcoming of the stalemate is also announced by the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu: "A consensus and common understanding have been reached on  issues. As we have always emphasized, the most important issues are the ceasefire and the open the way to lasting peace ":

Towards a Putin-Zelensky summit

Today's talks between the two delegations could also be the prelude to a summit between the presidents. "The results of today's meeting are sufficient for a top-level summit between leaders to take place", said Mikhailo Podolyak, advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and member of the Ukrainian delegation in Istanbul.

The "go-ahead" procedure

Once the general agreement has been found, there are other steps to be taken in order to then be able to seal the peace with the signing of Putin and Zelensky. First an agreement will be made between negotiators, then that between foreign ministers. 

Ukraine has presented to Russia its proposals for a Security Guarantee Treaty for Ukraine which should be signed by all security guarantors, namely Great Britain, China, USA, Turkey, France, Canada, Italy, Poland and Israel.

The implementation of this agreement will take place according to a precise procedure: first an all-Ukrainian referendum, then ratification in the Parliaments of the guaranteeing countries and in the Parliament of Ukraine. 

As for Crimea, the Ukrainian side proposes to negotiate the status of Crimea and Sevastopol for 15 years. During this period, both sides are urged not to use the military to resolve the Crimean issue

Foreign funding case, PTI's request not to give record to Petitioner Akbar S. Babar rejected

Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani heard the PTI's prohibited foreign funding case in the Islamabad High Court and remarked that he would decide after hearing the Election Commission and Akbar S Babar.

Lawyer PTI Anwar Mansoor said that Akbar S. Babar should be stopped from giving arguments on the documents of Election Commission. On this, the court said that how can one order short arguments in the Election Commission.

PTI’s action tell is something is bad in the in the files that will hurt them politically. The party and its leaders have always boasted about integrity and honesty in Politics and personal lives. 

The bad thing is that PTI has been submitting fake and false certificates from 2009-13 to conceal the funds received from abroad.

Experts Concerned at the growing heat wave at the poles

Extreme temperatures were recorded this Friday over both Arctic and Antarctic. Photo: File

The poles are also called the bottom of the earth and now, due to the changing weather, a scary heat wave has been observed there for the first time. In other words, temperatures in the Arctic have been recorded at 30 degrees Celsius above normal and 40 degrees Celsius in the Antarctic, which experts have described as extremely worrying.

On Friday, a meteorological tower called Concordia, more than 3,000 meters high, recorded a temperature of minus 12 degrees Celsius, while an even higher Vostok meteorological station recorded a temperature of minus 17.7 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, the temperature of the coastal station Terra Nova was above freezing point. Uni was 7 degrees Celsius.

The National Snow and Ice Center in Colorado also said that the temperature at the North Pole was 50 degrees above normal (Fahrenheit). Then in the middle of March, such heat is a terrible phenomenon and because of being on opposite sides of the earth, the weather there are also opposite to each other, ie in one place it is summer and in another place it is winter. But in this situation, the heatwave is wreaking havoc in both the places and both the areas are melting at the same speed at the same time.

Scientists have admitted that they have never seen such a situation before. That's not a good sign, according to Matthew Lazara, a meteorologist at the University of Wisconsin. He says the temperature in Antarctica at that time should have been minus 43 degrees Celsius, which is noted to be minus ten degrees Celsius.

However, experts have described it as a one-time event. They suspect that this is not a climate change, but if it happens again and again, it will be a terrible thing.

Scientists say it is important to consider this strange phenomenon in order to determine its cause. Scientists have called for more research

Imran Khan will leave the government in disgrace, Fazlur Rehman

 PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that Imran Khan will leave the government in disgrace.

Addressing a rally in Islamabad, JUI chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the struggle against illegitimate rulers was legitimate and it was time to end this illegitimate government. We are on the streets to get rid of illegitimate tyrants.

"Liberating this country is the purpose of our life. We want to show the world that we are ready to work on the basis of equality but not slavery. Our Election Commission is helpless which does not give the right result to the nation," he said. 

He said that our goal is to strengthen the institutions, we want the Election Commission to be independent.

He added that we would not allow the PTI to escape from foreign funding case. 

Maulana’s outburst against PM Imran khan is deplorable. Unfortunately, both the government and opposition are engaged in rhetoric which is not good for the nation considering the geopolitical situation. 

It is interesting to note that both prime minister and Maulana is accusing Election of Pakistan. Maulana is also talking about a force which has imposed the illegitimate ruler. But he dared not to name this force. 

As a Pakistani I think our leaders should not malign our institutions like Election Commission of Pakistan and army. 

I think Maulana should not utter such hurtful remarks against the prime minister instead he should use his energy to keep the opposition united and make no-confidence motion successful.


Israel-Arab relations are a strong message for Iran, says Israeli Foreign Ministerr

A historic meeting between US Secretary of State Anthony Blankenship, Israel and top diplomats from four Arab countries ended on Monday in which it was agreed that Arab countries should increase cooperation with Israel. This united front will send a strong message to Iran. 

 Negotiations between the foreign ministers of Israel and the Arab countries, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Egypt took place for the first time on Israeli soil. 

Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said that with the new developments and relations between Israel and Arab Countries send a send strong message to Iran, their common enemy.

On the other hand, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan termed the two-day gathering as historic and said that we are trying to change the statement here and create a different future. 

The question is : What has forced the four Arab countries to develop relations with the state of Israel?

In my opinion Iran’s belligerent behavior has frightened Arab countries.  A year ago the Iranian attack on tankers and oil installations have compelled Arabs to come near Israel in order to fight against the Iran. Arabs also see the rising Turkey as a threat too. In the summit they did not name Turkey but they think that Israel can help them contain Turkey too. 

The US has been trying to transform the Middle East for years. The Abraham Accord showed us what the US wanted to do in the Middle East. 

This new plan not only helped Americans to put in place their new architecture but also helped Israel in cementing its position in the Middle East.

Russia to economic collapse: the swooping ruble plays against China

 The ongoing war in Ukraine has suddenly revolutionized the Russian market and, consequently, the entire world economy. By limiting the analysis exclusively to the technology sector , there has been a diaspora of Western companies - as we are now reporting on a daily basis - and the void left by the big brands that have sided against Putin is trying to fill China which, to date, does not it officially took sides against the conflict by keeping open contacts with the Kremlin .

So much so that just before the invasion by the Russian army, Beijing and Moscow had entered into new trade agreements for the " mutual support of the two economies ": in other words, if Apple, Samsung and the other big names have cut ties with the country, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and other Chinese brands remained on the market . Among other things, with the hope of earning significant shares and expanding on the territory.

There is, however, a major problem: the ruble . The Russian currency has undergone an unprecedented devaluation - from 0.012 euros for a ruble in October 2021 it has gone to the current 0.0071 euros - and this creates major problems for those who - like Chinese tech companies - have decided to remain active in the territory. . In practice, China's leading smartphone manufacturers have halved shipments to Russia since the war began because demand has plummeted. Consider that 6 out of 10 smartphones in the country belong to Chinese brands.

The situation appears to be on standby, and Chinese manufacturers are starting to lose several managerial figures who have resigned in protest against the lack of deployment of their respective companies against the Ukrainian invasion. Despite this, the big Eastern players are willing to observe the Russian market ready to seize any shocks that reactivate bilateral trade. A scenario that, to date, seems decidedly difficult.


" You have to set a new price every day to avoid losses ," explains a Counterpoint Research analyst. With the ruble constantly losing value, the price of smartphones and more is growing just as steadily . And the merchandise remains unsold, with many distributors temporarily halting orders and some manufacturers beginning to fear US sanctions.

In short, on the one hand there is the fear that further sanctions against those who continue to have commercial relations with the country will be added to the sanctions against Russia. On the other hand, there is the willingness on the part of Chinese companies to fill the gaps left by Western companies: as long as the ruble is so weak, however, the supply will be present, but the demand will trudge so much as to make the efforts of the company useless. Chinese business in Russia.

One hypothesis could be to completely break away from the Swift system - many banks have already been ousted - by adopting Cips , an alternative Chinese solution based on the renminbi. Beyond all the problems that this step would entail, we must also take into account the timing for opening a renminbi account at the Moscow office of the Bank of China: the more people who request it, the more it is needed. patience for activation. And it may be too late, as the Russian economy appears to be collapsing already.

Realme GT Neo 3

 There are just a few days left until the presentation of Realme GT 3 Neo , the new smartphone from Realme that promises to introduce one of the fastest fast recharges on the market with its 150 W of power , but it doesn't seem to end there. The latest rumors allow us to draw an even more complete picture of the specifications, starting with the equipped SoC.


The latest news on this comes through two teasers shared by Realme itself , which anticipate that the SoC chosen for GT Neo 3 is the new MediaTek Dimensity 8100 recently announced , a mid-high-end 5nm chip that guarantees excellent performance on the CPU side and promises to offer a good gaming experience too thanks to its Mali-G610 MC6 GPU . Performance that should also be supported by the presence of internal UFS 3.1 memories , therefore able to always be fast and reactive in any scenario of use.

Therefore, if the SoC seems to promise well, it is equally interesting to see how Realme seems to have also paid attention to the management of the display, since the second teaser confirms the presence of a proprietary chip dedicated to the screen , in order to guarantee better performance and consumption. lower energy. We remind you that GT Neo 3 should be equipped with a 6.7 "AMOLED type panel with FullHD + resolution and a hole for the camera (16 MP), in addition to the inevitable high refresh rate which should be positioned at 120 Hz.

Among the other features that emerged in recent weeks there is also the presence of a triple rear camera with a 50 MegaPixe l main sensor (Sony IMX766), flanked by an 8 MP ultra wide-angle lens and a 2 MP macro as inevitable as it is useless. The battery should be a 4,500 mAh unit capable of recharging from 0 to 100% in just 5 minutes , thanks to the aforementioned 150 W recharge.

iPhone SE 2022, semi-shock start: low sales, Apple halves estimates | Kuo

 The iPhone SE 2022 adventure doesn't seem to have started very well . This was reported by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a normally trusted voice for Apple products. The smartphone announced at the beginning of the month does not seem to have thrilled the market, so much so that according to Kuo, Apple has already adjusted the estimates for 2022 downwards .

Previously DigiTimes had reported that the Apple would have expected to sell 30 million iPhone SE 2022 by the end of the year , now instead the information collected by Kuo indicates numbers as large as half or a little less : the forecast would have been revised to 15-20 million of unity , a sign that the reception of the public was not the warmest.


The skepticism of some, at first, has understandable reasons. The cheapest iPhone of the range is aesthetically an iPhone SE 2020 , which in turn has the appearance of the iPhone 8 that that design brought it to the market in 2017, when, moreover, there were already products with a more modern look on the market - such as iPhone X , with which he shared the stage of Apple Park.

Furthermore, even if we want to go beyond the aesthetics, there is nothing new in terms of components, except for the A15 Bionic chip with the 5G modem . iPhone SE 2022 has the usual 4.7-inch LCD display, a little anachronistic, the same 12 megapixel main camera (only one on the back, by the way) from two years ago and a battery that is more capacious but that will have to prove to be able to absorb the greater energy demands of the 5G module without worsening the autonomy compared to the past.

In short, iPhone SE 2022 is an "Apple-style" operation that seems not to be working as the leaders of Cupertino and some observers would have expected . The good thing is that those who are fascinated by a product with the very powerful Apple chip that is on the top of the range from almost 1,000 euros and which costs about half do not have to wait for new stocks to arrive at the warehouses.

On Amazon, at the time of writing, a good part of the range is available for purchase: here are the links of configurations and colors ready for shipment , if only to give you an idea.

Vitamin D: a valuable aid for athletes

 Vitamin D is particularly important for those who practice sports , both at an amateur and competitive level and there are now numerous studies to support this thesis. In fact, we are talking about a vitamin that plays a fundamental role, as it represents the main vehicle for the absorption of calcium by the body but not only. It is also very important for the muscles and for maintaining the normal functions of the immune system.

Unfortunately, even today there are several Italians who suffer from a lack of vitamin D, exposure to sunlight guarantees most of the need for vitamin. D of our body

What many do not know, however, is that even with nutrition you can help counteract any insufficiency of this vitamin and you can therefore act to ensure the body's daily needs.

Supplementing vitamin D with your diet

As we have mentioned, the main source of vitamin D is exposure to sunlight . To guarantee the body sufficient reserves, therefore, it is sufficient to expose the body to the sun without filters of any kind. Unfortunately, however, in many cases, our exposure to UV rays is not enough to avoid the risk of insufficiency and it is precisely at this point that the important role of nutrition comes into play.

Parmalat milk with Vitamin D

There are not many foods that contain vitamin D in significant quantities and among the main ones we find some fatty fish including cod, tuna, salmon, sardines. In smaller quantities it is also contained in milk and its derivatives. For this reason Parmalat has chosen to renew its traditional milk by enriching it with vitamin D which is a perfect food for everyone, even for athletes. It helps to reach the adequate quantities and therefore allows the calcium to be better absorbed by the body, which also derives numerous benefits from other points of view.

Insufficiency of vitamin D: because it is dangerous for athletes

An insufficiency of vitamin D is particularly dangerous for athletes, as it not only determines a decline in performance but can cause problems at the osteo-muscular level. We have seen how this vitamin is important for the well-being of the bones, because it represents a fundamental vehicle for the absorption of calcium. If the reserves of vitamin D are insufficient, therefore, the sportsman can face an increased risk of fractures, due to bone weakness . Not surprisingly, severe insufficiency of this vitamin is closely related to osteoporosis, which mainly affects the elderly, the most susceptible segment of the population.

Not only that: several studies have shown that low levels of vitamin D often lead to myopathy, i.e. muscle weakness . It is therefore clear that physical performance is also affected, especially when the body is subjected to significant effort.

Parmalat milk enriched with vitamin D can therefore represent a valid help for everyone but especially for athletes, who need an adequate supply to avoid fragile bones and to strengthen muscle function.

Fear of a nuclear escalation, Biden creates the Tiger Team to enter Putin's mind

 A group of super experts supports Washington to prevent the Russians' moves and to understand in advance the intention to use unconventional weapons

A small top secret group to identify the most appropriate responses to Vladimir Putin's moves, from the possible use of chemical , biological and nuclear weapons to an expansion of the conflict beyond Ukraine.

After playing a central role in defining the sanctions against Moscow, the Tiger Team strongly wanted by Joe Biden is now practicing in trying to prevent the Russian president and, above all, on how to respond to his actions.

In meetings held three times a week , the experts chosen by the White House carefully examine the events and their possible evolutions, with the aim also of setting the ' red line ' for the use of NATO military force in Ukraine. A threshold not yet identified and it is not clear whether it can be crossed with the Russian president's possible use of the most frightening weapons, chemical or nuclear ones.

The Tiger Team's assessments , however, also go beyond the battlefield scenarios, and go so far as to try to find answers to the refugee emergency , the security needs of the American embassy in Kiev and the dangers of a cyberattack .

The team also includes officials committed to examining the long-term opportunities the invasion of Russia offers the United States to improve its geopolitical position .

Inside the White House, the mantra that repeats itself is that Putin has committed a huge strategic mistake , capable of reducing the weight of Russia on a global level and alienating possible allies to the country for years.

While looking ahead, the Tiger Team devotes most of its efforts to trying to get inside Putin's head and understand how he will move.

Frustrated by the progress of his military campaign and determined to prove that his armed forces are still scary, the Tsar appears at this time particularly difficult to decipher . And this represents one of the biggest problems of the team.

US, Israel, Arab nations join forces to prevent Iran from building atomic bomb. Will they succeed?

The United States, Israel and the Arab states, which recognize Israel, have joined forces to prevent Iran from building an atomic bomb.  

The news that Iran could have nuclear fuel to build an atomic bomb has frightened the Biden Administration. That’s is why they are so eager to revive the nuclear deal because they think it will enable them to stop the progress made by Iran after attacks made by Israel. 

Israel attack on Iranian installation only worked in Iran’s favour. It helped Iran to rebuild the installation and give it a pretext to remove the sensors installed by international inspectors. 

According to AFP, Anthony Blanken will meet with the foreign ministers of Israel, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in the Negev desert

According to details, US Secretary of State Anthony Blanken said on Sunday that the United States and Israel have agreed to stop Iran from building an atomic bomb.

 He said this before talks with Arab foreign ministers in Israel. Occupied Jerusalem is meeting with Israeli officials as there are indications that the historic 2015 nuclear deal with Iran will be restored soon. 

Israel says renewed agreement will not be enough to stave off Iranian threat. Iran, on the other hand, insists that its nuclear program is for civilian use only. 

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said Israel had "differences" with Washington over the Iranian nuclear issue, on which it was negotiating "openly and honestly" with its key ally. He said Israel would everything possible to be done in this regard as Israel believed that Iranian threat is real.

He said that Iranians want to destroy Israel but they would not let them succeed. The US Secretary of State has sought to reassure Israeli and Arab partners attending a unique meeting in Israel that the United States will continue to counter the Iranian threat.

The question is: will Iran stop the fuel development when they have approach the final stage of their work?

I don’t think so.  Though Israel’s concern looks genuine and credible. If sanctions are lifted it will provide resources to Iran to speed up their work.
