Lapid in Paris: Important to Present 'United Stance' on Iran Deal

“It is important for the international community to hear Israel's opinion on the Iran nuclear deal,” Prime Minister Yair Lapid said on Tuesday morning, July 5, ahead of his flight to Paris where he will meet with French President Emmanuel Macron.

"We are presenting a united stance before the international community," he said, regarding Israel's opposition to the nuclear deal.

“A large part of the trip will be devoted to the nuclear deal with Iran. We will also address the repeated attacks on Israeli gas rigs - Israel will not agree to this type of attack on its sovereignty, Lebanon must restrain Hezbollah".

Lapid plans to ask Macron to relay to Lebanon that Israel will not negotiate its maritime border while under threat from Hezbollah. He also plans to present new materials showing how Hezbollah, which in addition to being an Iran-backed terrorist group is a party in the Lebanese government, is endangering Lebanon and its security.

Israel hopes to work with its partners on an international campaign against Iran with diplomatic and economic elements, the source said, adding that Lapid will try to gain an understanding of what France, specifically, and the E3 – the three European countries involved in Iran talks, the UK, Germany, and France – are willing to do on that front. Other matters on Lapid’s agenda for the Paris trip include the energy crisis, the war in Ukraine, and economic and security bilateral relations between Israel and France. (JPost / VFI News)
