"Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to fly Monday morning to Europe, where he will meet with European leaders on the future of the Iranian nuclear agreement.
According to Haaretz, the visit will begin in Berlin, where Netanyahu will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. In the evening he will fly to Paris. He will meet with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace Tuesday. On Wednesday he will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Foreign Minister Boris Johnson. Netanyahu is also expected to meet with British MPs.
Satisfied with the United States withdrawal from the nuclear agreement, Netanyahu has spoken on the phone with all three European leaders in an attempt to persuade them to support American pressure on Iran.
However, the three countries, along with China and Russia, are in favor of remaining in the agreement and discussing its future with Iran.
At the start of the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday. Netanyahu said: "Of course, I will reiterate an unchanging truth: "Israel" will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons."
Regarding Iran's entrenchment in Syria, he said, "I will also insist on a basic principle: Israel retains - and will continue to retain - freedom of action against the establishment of an Iranian military presence anywhere in Syria.
"I recently discussed these issues with Russian President Vladimir Putin and ... Pompeo."
Merkel, Macron and May are expected to bring up the aggression on Gaza Strip. In recent weeks, the three countries have expressed great concern over the extent of the killings in the Gaza Strip.
