PARIS — Foreign Minister Yair Lapid met with French President Emmanuel Macron today at the Elysee Palace. The focus of the meeting was the resumption of the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna yesterday, Nov. 29, over Israeli protests. Lapid raised the same issue yesterday in London in his meetings with British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss and with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Lapid’s office noted in a statement that the meeting with Macron was warm and friendly and that Lapid reiterated Israel’s stance that Iran is trying to stall for time to advance its nuclear program. Lapid also stressed the immediate need for the world powers to restore sanctions on Iran and to formulate what he called a Plan B.
