Paris committed to Israel’s security, Fabius tells Rivlin

France is committed to peace in the Middle East and to Israel’s security, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday ahead of his projected meeting on Monday with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Of the European countries negotiating with Iran on a nuclear deal, France has taken the toughest stance.

When he began negotiating with Iran three years ago, Fabius told Rivlin, he had prepared a draft that contained an unequivocal clause to the effect that under no circumstances will Iran seek or possess nuclear weapons.
