Netanyahu to meet today with Germany’s FM to discuss Iran, peace process

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet Sunday morning in Jerusalem with visiting German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Their discussion is expected to focus not solely on Iran, but also on stepped-up European efforts to resuscitate the moribund Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic process.

Germany, a key EU power and one of Israel’s closest friends inside the organization, has not yet made its position known publicly regarding France’s intention to bring a proposal with a firm timetable to the UN Security Council, calling for a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 lines.

That resolution is expected to be brought together with New Zealand, which is a temporary member of the council, while France is a permanent member.
