Following the meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, France's President Emmanuel Macron stated that Paris won't change its stance on Iran's nuclear ambitions, adding that France is determined Tehran will never acquire nuclear weapons.
"In the current context, France is determined that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon, but also that we avoid all military escalation in the region," Macron said.
At the same time, Netanyahu has called on France to introduce sanctions against Iran over the latter's move to continue enriching uranium.
Macron arrived in Israel for a two-day visit ahead of commemorations marking 75 years since the liberation of the Nazi Auschwitz extermination camp.
Tehran condemned the decision that was made amid reports that US President Donald Trump threatened the European nations with slamming car tariffs for the lack of action against Tehran.
