In a call with the president of France, Prime Minister Lapid “reiterated Israel’s opposition to a return to the [nuclear] agreement as well as the need for a clear and unequivocal message that there will be no additional concessions to the Iranians”. According to a readout from the Prime Minister’s office, Lapid asserted that “the Iranians are continuing to conduct negotiations on an offer which was presented as ‘take it or leave it’”, cautioning: “In that offer, there are new elements that go beyond the limits of the original JCPOA... It will pave the way for significant investment to flow into Iran’s terrorist network and to strengthening the Iranian military”.
