Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke Tuesday with French President Emmanuel Macron and congratulated him on being elected to a second term.
According to his office, Bennett thanked President Macron for expressing support for Israel in the face of terrorist attacks and for France’s commitment to the security of Israel.
‘’The two leaders discussed strengthening the ties between Israel and France and the strong bilateral relations in all areas,’’ the statement added.
They two also discussed the security situation in the region, especially Iran, as well as opportunities for cooperation and the war in Europe and its implications.
They agreed to meet soon.
In a video message issued on the occasion of the recent 74th anniversary of the State of Israel, President Macron stressed his “deep attachment to Israel.”
“The closeness between our two countries is rooted in the richness of the human ties that unite us, in particular thanks to the French libingbin Israel who bring our relationship to life every day,” he said.
“You can count on me to strengthen it at all levels, including the European level. First and foremost, in our common fight against the terrorism that has once again hit you so hard,” he continued.
“The security of Israel is at the heart of our partnership. In view of the renewed tensions in Jerusalem in recent weeks, I would like to welcome the efforts made to avoid an escalation. I also want to commend the commitment of Israel and our Arab partners who gave birth to the Abraham Accords. They contribute to stability and peace. They must be strengthened and expanded,” the French President, who was reelected for a second term end of April, added.
