WASHINGTON - A senior US Treasury official will travel to Israel this week to discuss the nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers with senior Israeli officials, the Treasury Department said on Thursday.

Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin will travel to Israel from Friday through Monday, the Treasury said in a statement. It will be his first visit there since the nuclear deal was signed in July.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly opposes the accord reached between Iran and the United States and five other world powers, which imposes limits on Iran's nuclear program in return for relief from sanctions. He argues the deal does not do enough to curb Iran's nuclear program and will bring Tehran a windfall in sanctions relief that could help fund regional conflicts.
