Election of Isaac Herzog – Press Release from the French Presidency (Elysée Palace, 3.06.21)


President Macron extends his warm congratulations to Mr Isaac Herzog on being elected President of the State of Israel, as well as to the Israeli people. He would also like to pay tribute to President Reuven Rivlin who has personally worked to strengthen the spirit of friendship and cooperation that has presided over Franco-Israeli relations for more than 70 years.

On this occasion, President Macron reiterates his desire to continue working with Israel in all the areas that are key to our extensive partnership. He also recalls, as he did amid the spiral of violence that the Middle East has recently experienced, his unfailing commitment to the security of the State of Israel, and France’s determination to stand by its side to ensure regional security and stability.
