Foreign Minister Eli Cohen meets with British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly in Jerusalem, and discusses Iran’s nuclear program and expanding the Abraham Accords, according to the Foreign Ministry.
“Three years after the signing of the Abraham Accords, we are working with our friends in the world to expand the circle of peace and normalization,” says Cohen in a statement. “Britain and Israel are united in their position regarding the importance of stopping the Iranian nuclear program and Iran’s terrorist activities and its terrorist proxies throughout the Middle East and the world.”
Cohen also asks Cleverly to help advance a bilateral free trade agreement.
Cohen invites Rabbi Leo Dee, a British citizen whose wife and two daughters were murdered by Palestinian terrorists earlier this year, to meet with Cleverly as well. Dee recently became a Foreign Ministry special envoy.
Earlier in the afternoon, Cleverly paid a visit to Yad Vashem, where he was hosted by chairman Dani Dayan.
