Macron hosts Israeli PM: 'Iran will be at the top of Netanyahu's agenda'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with France’s president, business leaders and members of France’s Jewish community during a trip to Paris starting Thursday that has angered Palestinian supporters amid a new spasm of violence in the Mideast. The visit started with a dinner meeting at the Elysee Palace, where French President Emmanuel Macron's office said he planned to share France’s “solidarity with Israel in the face of terrorism,” but also stress “the need for everyone to avoid measures likely to feed the spiral of violence.” Macron also is offering to help revive long-stalled dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians. Upon departing for France, Netanyahu said Iran and its nuclear program would be “the main topic of our talk” when he meets with Macron. The French leader has criticized Iran's lack of transparency over its nuclear activities and warned that its support for Russia’s war in Ukraine exposed Iran to further sanctions and growing isolation. For more on Netanyahu's trip, amid one of the deadliest periods of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in years, FRANCE 24 is joined by Khaled Elgindy, Senior Fellow at the Middle East Institute and Director of MEI's Program on Palestine and Israeli-Palestinian Affairs.
