With US President Joe Biden attempting to push back on his ancestor Donald Trump’s withdrawal from a 2015 Iran atomic arrangement, Israeli authorities have secretly proposed the European abilities in the discussions are currently harder on Iran than Washington.
This thus implies that Lapid’s visit to France, his first abroad since becoming overseer chief last week, was an opportunity for him to campaign Europeans on that front.
