Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will fly to Europe next week to hold talks with the UK’s Boris Johnson and France’s Emmanuel Macron on the resumption of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program and on bilateral ties.

Indirect talks between the US and Iran over a return to the 2015 JCPOA are set to resume next Monday.

Lapid will take off Sunday morning for London, and will hold meetings on Monday with his British counterpart Liz Truss, Johnson, and the Conservative Friends of Israel.

On Tuesday, Lapid will meet with French FM Jean-Yves Le Drian, followed by his sit-down with Macron.

He is expected to return to Israel early Wednesday morning.
