Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) will fly to Paris Friday for a series of high-level meetings.

Herzog is scheduled to meet with French President Francois Hollande and Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius at the Elysee Palace on Friday.

On Monday, he will meet French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and the French Socialist Party chairman Jean-Cristophe Cambadelis.

Herzog plans to repeat his statements from earlier this week that a Palestinian state is currently not viable, and that a separation between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as Israeli security, must be ensured.

He also plans to speak out against the recent EU call for a multilateral push for negotiations, saying it is not helpful and will not bring the result they seek.
