Netanyahu to Hollande: Zionism greatly influenced by France
Sun Nov 17, 2013 18:12:33

Pleased with his hardened stance toward Iran's nuclear program, Israeli regime has welcomed French President Francois Hollande for a three-day visit to the occupied territories.

Israeli President Shimon Peres told Hollande that Israelis owed him for his country’s role in preventing a long-awaited deal over Iran’s nuclear program.

Prime minister of the Israeli Zionist regime Binyamin Netanyahu also hailed France for its stance against Iran.

Last week, Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Britain, China, France, Russia and the US - plus Germany, held intense discussions in the Swiss city of Geneva.

The two sides were close to a deal but last-minute changes left the discussions without any agreements.

"Israel sees France as a true friend," Netanyahu told Hollande.

"Zionism was influenced greatly by the ideals of the French revolution - Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité," Netanyahu told Hollande. "You are a leader with principles and much humanity."

The French leader heads a large French delegation for a three-day trip, Hollande’s first since becoming president 18 months ago.

The nuclear-armed Israel has been threatening Iran with military strike for years and now the regime has been trying hard to prevent a deal that would end Western standoff over Iran’s nuclear program which has been conducted under the supervision of International Atomic Energy Agency.
