Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapi thanked the governments of France, the United Kingdom and Germany for the “firm position” expressed on Saturday on the current negotiations with Iran to resume the 2015 nuclear agreement, which Israel has always opposed for understand that it does not eliminate potential threats.
The European powers that once helped sign the deal now have “serious doubts” about Iran’s desire to actually reach a new deal. They recognize that they are “to the limit” in terms of “flexibility”, in an apparent ultimatum that Tehran did not like.
On the other hand, Lapid liked it, and he applauded the statement at the beginning of a government meeting. The prime minister has affirmed that Israel has presented reports that supposedly substantiate its misgivings in a “calm and intense” dialogue with the British, Germans and French.
“It’s not over yet,” he warned, anticipating a “long road ahead” in which he now sees “encouraging signs,” according to the Times of Israel newspaper.
Negotiations with Iran will be part of the agenda of the trip that Lapid begins this Sunday to Germany, where he plans to meet Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz.
