Netanyahu Opposes Russian-US Agreement on Ceasefire in South Syria

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara flew Saturday night to Paris, where he is scheduled to meet Sunday (July 16) French President Emanuel Macron for talks, and participate in a ceremony marking 75 years since the deportation of Jews to the Nazi death camps in Auschwitz.

Haaretz reported that until now the Israeli government's displeasure with the cease-fire deal brokered by both the USA and Russian Federation had only been expressed through quiet diplomatic channels.

From Netanyahu's point of view the agreement perpetuated Iranian presence in the war-torn Arab republic, the Haaretz newspaper reported, adding that Netanyahu pointed out his complete opposition to the deal.

French president Emmanuel Macron says his glamorous Paris charm offensive on Donald Trump might have changed the United States president's mind about climate change.

More than 4,000 were children.

"In this regard, France is prepared to support all diplomatic efforts on the basis of the peace parameters recognized by the worldwide community", he said.

Netanyahu, who first addressed the crowd in French and saluted "my friend President Macron", noted that "the Nazis and their collaborators. shattered the lives of thousands of Jews at Vel' d'Hiv".

During a recent meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas held at the Elysee presidential palace, Macron reiterated France's support for a two-state solution and condemned Israeli settlement construction, two traditional French diplomatic positions on the issue.

Macron said that "everything should be done so that negotiations restart" with the aim of reaching a two-state solution, as the worldwide community has long sought.

He is the first Israeli prime minister to attend the Vel d'Hiv commemorations. "We will never forget, never, these great, great human beings". "It seems the values of the French revolution - equality, fraternity, liberty - was crushed brutally under the boot of anti-Semitism".

"Militant Islam wants to destroy our common civilization", Netanyahu told the French president.

Yassine Blicqy, 19, a protester from Valenciennes, said: "I hope that France, in the next few years or even decades, will choose justice and will side with the oppressed peoples because that's what France is about. We must stand against them together; we must remain strong against them together; and we must defeat them together". Netanyahu's next stop on his current trip overseas is Hungary.
