Prime Minister Yair Lapid departed Sunday for Germany for a series of top-level meetings in which he will present Israel’s latest case against signing a renewed nuclear deal with Iran.
Lapid took off from Ben Gurion Airport for Berlin, where he will meet Monday with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.
Steinmeier and Lapid will also meet at the House of the Wannsee Conference with Holocaust survivors who are flying with the prime minister.
Iran’s nuclear program will top the agenda, with the two sides also set to discuss bilateral ties, Israel-EU relations, energy security and the war in Ukraine. An agreement on a youth student exchange will also be announced during the trip.
