Macron calls for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at Holocaust service

Macron calls for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at Holocaust service

Commemorating 75 years since a mass roundup of French Jews alongside Netanyahu, Macron insisted that "it was indeed France that organized this".

In July 1942, 13,152 Jews were arrested at the request of the Nazis and by order of the French government in power. "Among them, 4,115 children between ages of two and six, whom we are especially honoring today".

Fewer than 100 of those who were detained and then sent to the Nazi death camps survived.

Netanyahu was the first Israeli prime minister to attend a Vel d'Hiv commemoration, and he said the invitation was a "very, very strong gesture". "It's true that Vichy wasn't all of France, but Vichy was the government of France and the French establishment It was responsible for deporting French Jews, and not the Germans".

Jacques Chirac was the first president to accept France's role in the roundup and to pay homage in 1995. It's convenient and easy to see Vichy as something perpetrated by foreign agents but it was the reality. We have known in Israel a lot of heroism, as have you here in France.

French president Emmanuel Macron says his glamorous Paris charm offensive on Donald Trump might have changed the U.S. president's mind about climate change.

TRT World's Kim Vinnell reports.

Netanyahu made the comments during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, declaring himself totally opposed to the ceasefire.

De Villiers still has Macron's "full trust", the president told JDD, provided the top general "knows the chain of command and how it works".

At the end of the ceremony, Macron and Netanyahu went to the presidential palace in Paris to talk about Syria and Iran as well as the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. But he warned that continued Jewish settlement construction threatens peace efforts.

Pro-Palestinian and other activists protested Netanyahu's appearance in Paris, criticising Jewish settlement policy and the blockade of Gaza.

He said: "I share Israel's concerns about Hezbollah's activity in south Lebanon and about the arms the group has".

It now transpires that during the conversations held by the USA and Russian Federation with Israel over the ceasefire, Israel had expressed many reservations about the security implications of the deal, and the Israelis now feel that their concerns about Iran, Hezbollah and other Shiite militias were swept aside and not addressed.

Two leaders also discussed fighting extremism in Syria and elsewhere, and improving economic cooperation.
