Michael Oren: No link between Pollard's reported early release and Iran nuclear deal

Former Israeli ambassador to the US and current Kulanu MK Michael Oren said Saturday that would be happy if reports were true that Washington was considering an early prison release for convicted spy for Israel, Jonathan Pollard.

Oren added that if reports were true, Pollard's release would not in any way stand as compensation to Israel for the recent nuclear deal between world powers and Iran.

"Certainly there is no connection between Pollard's release, which is a matter of mercy and justice, and the bad deal with Iran, which is a security and existential matter," he said after the Wall Street Journal published a report Friday on Pollard's release.
