French FM says ready to work with new government to restart peace talks

French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian says that France is ready to work to restart direct Israeli-Palestinian peace talks now that a new Israeli government has been installed.

“France is ready to support any effort allowing a resumption of dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians with a view to a just and lasting settlement of the conflict, within the framework of a two-state solution,” says Le Drian.

The French foreign minister adds, “France reaffirms its determination to work with the new government,” and will maintain its “unwavering attachment to the security of the State of Israel, and its determination to work alongside it to preserve the regional security and stability.”
