GLASGOW – Iran played a prominent role in Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s bilateral meetings during the United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow on Monday, commonly known as COP26. Bennett and French President Emmanuel Macron held a one-on-one meeting, where they discussed challenges in the Middle East, Iran’s advanced enrichment of uranium in recent months, foremost. France was party to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal and supports resuming negotiations to rejoin it, as does the UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to meet with Bennett on Tuesday.

The UK, France, Germany and the US released a statement on Saturday rapping Iran for enriching uranium to a point at which there is no longer a credible civilian use and indicates a weapons program. However, they called on Iran to return to the negotiating table. US President Joe Biden committed the US in the statement to returning to the Iran deal and staying in it, as long as Iran does the same.
