Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid told French President Emmanuel Macron that Israel would make no further concessions to Iran
Israel declared on Monday that it will stop granting Iran any further favors and would keep doing everything in its power to stop them from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said Israel rejects a return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, often known as the Iran Nuclear Deal, and would not be bound by such an agreement in a phone conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday.
He declared that Israel would keep trying everything to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
The Iranian offer was framed as “take it or leave it,” but Prime Minister Lapid highlighted in his phone conversation with Macron that negotiations are still ongoing.

Iran accused the United States on Monday (Aug 22) of procrastinating in efforts to revive Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal – a charge denied by Washington, which said a deal was closer than two weeks ago because of apparent Iranian flexibility.
After 16 months of fitful, indirect American-Iranian talks, with European Union officials shuttling between the sides, a senior EU official said on Aug 8 it had laid down a final offer and expected a response within a “very, very few weeks”.
Iran provided “new perspectives and considerations” in response to the EU’s letter last week and urged the US to be flexible in resolving the remaining three issues.
Josep Borrell, the head of foreign affairs for the EU, expressed optimism that the United States will accept the bloc’s plan as early as this week and noted that Iran had responded in a “reasonable” manner.
