Netanyahu arrives in France for talks with Hollande

AFP , Wednesday 31 Oct 2012

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in France Wednesday for a two-day visit that includes talks with President Francois Hollande focusing on the Iranian nuclear programme.

It is Netanyahu's "first opportunity to talk with President Hollande, and he hopes to build a good working relationship with the French leader," a source close to the Israeli leader told AFP.

Since taking office five months ago, Hollande has only spoken to Netanyahu by telephone but has already met Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas twice -- both times in Paris.
