Daily Briefing Dec. 2 – Lapid visits British, French leaders during Iran talks

Political reporter Tal Schneider and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman discuss nuclear negotiations in Vienna, Lapid’s trip to Europe and President Herzog’s first six months

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Political reporter Tal Schneider and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman appear on today’s podcast with host Jessica Steinberg.

Berman discusses the progress in nuclear talks with Iran that began in Vienna on Monday and will finish up today. He says expectations are low and things remain tense, but he and Schneider agree that the participating countries are paying attention to Israel and its arguments.

Berman then looks at Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s three-day trip to London and Paris, where he met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron.

While it’s somewhat unusual for a foreign minister to meet with heads of state, both Berman and Schneider point out that Lapid is slated to be Israel’s next prime minister, should his and Bennett’s coalition hold.

Finally, Schneider offers a sneak peek at her analysis piece about President Isaac Herzog and his recent diplomatic activities.

Discussed articles include:
