Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid is set to travel to France tomorrow (Tuesday) for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron on Iran’s nuclear deal and other issues concerning the talks.
This will be Lipid’s first official visit abroad as Prime Minister, and will be accompanied by National Security Adviser Eyal Hulata, Military Secretary Avi Gil and close advisers.
According to Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, Lapid will expresse Israel’s concern over “the possible resumption of the Iran nuclear deal and the removal of sanctions on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) from the US foreign terrorist list.”
The newspaper portrayed relations between Lapid and Macron “an excellent” in which Israeli PM considers the French President as one of his closest friends amongst the leaders of European countries.
Lapid’s office did not comment or confirm the visit so far.
Israel and Iran relations have always been very overwrought, and both the countries threatened each other of fatal strikes if war breaks out between them.
