Herzog urged Johnson to take a tough stance in the negotiations. “Be as tough as possible because we do not believe that you are operating in good faith, and only if all options are on the table can things move in the right direction,” said the Israeli president.

Johnson understands Israel’s position, noting that it has been clear, adding that the world is in a situation where it “does not have much time” to find the solution to Iran’s fast-moving nuclear program.

The Israeli president also thanked the British government for its decision to declare Hamas’s political wing, as well as its military wing, a terrorist organization.

The prime minister admitted that while the decision was “controversial,” it was ultimately correct and “vindicated” after the terrorist attack in Jerusalem on Sunday, which resulted in the death of an Israeli soldier.

Herzog also met with leaders of the British Jewish community in London, including the heads of the British Jewish Board of Deputies, the Jewish Leadership Council, the Union of Jewish Students and UJIA.

“I have put the issue of relations between Israel and the Jews of the world at the top of our priority list, and we intend to invest a lot of time and effort to ensure that all Jews, wherever they are, whatever they may be. their denomination, in what they believe or not believe, they feel at home in the State of Israel, “he added.
