PMO denies Netanyahu met with Mogherini

The Prime Minister’s Office plays down reports about a meeting between Netanyahu and EU foreign policy chief Mogherini in Paris, noting that the two had merely shaken hands in the corridor.

Netanyahu had announced yesterday the suspension of all discussion with the EU vis-a-vis the peace process with the Palestinians.

One world leader that Netanyahu conclusively did meet with was Japanese President Abe.

According to the PMO, the meeting was “warm and friendly” and the two leaders “exchanged opinions on the war on global terrorism. Abe presented his desire to keep advancing the cooperation with Israel in the areas of economy, cyber and the war on terrorism.”

Meanwhile, South African President Jacob Zuma — a frequent and sometimes vehement critic of Israel who is also in Paris — says his country’s relations with Israel “need to go up.”
