Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock at the Prime Minister's office at the Kirya in Tel Aviv.

Prime Minister Bennett welcomed German Foreign Minister Baerbock on her first visit to Israel in her official capacity. She told the Prime Minister about her moving visit to Yad Vashem.

The two discussed at length the security and regional challenges, especially the Iranian nuclear issue. The Prime Minister presented the Israeli position, according to which signing a nuclear agreement with Iran would be a mistake that would endanger the entire region. He also emphasized that a target date must be set for the conclusion of the negotiations since their extension, even as the enrichment of uranium continues, only serves Iranian interests.

Prime Minister Bennett and German Foreign Minister Baerbock also discussed advancing bilateral cooperation in dealing with the coronavirus.

Israeli Ambassador to Germany Jeremy Issacharoff and German Ambassador to Israel Dr. Susanne Wasum-Rainer also participated in the meeting.
