Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, who has been acting as a de facto shadow foreign minister since taking his party into the opposition earlier this year, told France's top diplomat on Friday that Israel was committed to maintaining the status quo on Temple Mount and the other holy sites in Jerusalem.

Lapid praised French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and his government as "true friends of Israel," despite Jerusalem's anger at the Quai d'Orsay for its recent proposal mandating foreign observers on Temple Mount as a means to defuse the tensions that have engulfed the region in recent weeks.
