War: Top German, British diplomats travel to Israel for talks

Written by on April 17, 2024

German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, and British Foreign Secretary David Cameron were in Israel on Wednesday for crisis diplomacy talks.

Cameron spoke in favour of a measured response by Israel to Iran’s recent attack.

He hopes the country responds in a way that “is smart, as well as tough,” but that does not escalate the conflict.

According to him, it was more important to concentrate on freeing the Israeli hostages, getting aid supplies into the Gaza Strip and achieving a ceasefire there, adding that he planned to discuss this with the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority.

Baerbock and Cameron met Israeli President, Isaac Herzog and planned to hold further talks with top Israeli officials in a separate but coordinated manner, according to the German Foreign Office.

Baerbock also met with Israeli Foreign Minister, Israel Katz, during the visit, her seventh since the deadly October 7 attacks on Israel led by the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

She is also set to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former opposition leader Benny Gantz, who is a member of the Israeli war Cabinet, before departing later on Wednesday.

At the centre of the discussions are fears that the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip could erupt into a major regional war.

DAILY POST recalls that Iran launched significant air attacks on Israel on Saturday in response to a strike on the Iranian embassy in Damascus.

Israeli officials are now vowing a harsh counter-attack against Iran.

Israel’s allies worry such a response could fuel a spiral of violence and are urging restraint.
