During the Jerusalem meeting, Lapid says the leaders discussed deepening collaboration on combating antisemitism and on preserving the memory of the Holocaust.

“Additionally, we discussed the security challenges and relevant regional issues, chief among them the Iranian threat,” Lapid tweets. “I stressed to the chancellor the importance of international opposition to the [nuclear] deal, and Israel’s fear of Iran’s continued nuclear armament.”
