Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday at the Champs D'elysees in Paris, discussing the issues of Iran, the peace process, and the Middle East.

Regarding the stalled peace process with the Palestinians, Netanyahu challenged the French president to organize negotiations with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Netanyahu repeated his claim that he had no preconditions for talks, while Hollande assured the Israeli leader that the Palestinians also were without preconditions.

The two positions were more in line on the Iranian issue, as Hollande called for concrete acts by Iran to combat the alleged nuclear arms drive.
