Macron took his place next to Zionism

The event itself marked 75 years since a mass roundup of French Jews outside of Paris, with Macron lashing out at those who still downplay the French role in sending tens of thousands of Jews to death.

Officials also say that during the US-Russia negotiations which led to the deal, Netanyahu presented the two sides with a "list of demands", mostly insisting that Shi'ite forces couldn't be allowed in southern Syria at all, and that Iran could not be allowed to "consolidate" its position in Syria.

In April, Marine Le Pen, the far-right National Front leader whom Mr. Macron defeated in a May runoff election, declared that "France was not responsible for the Vel d'Hiv", denying French responsibility and setting off a furor. "Barbarity is here on the street corner", he said, apparently referring to attacks on Jews by young men of immigrant origin.

On July 16 and 17, 1942, French police officers rounded up more than 13,000 Jews at the Winter Stadium, or Velodrome d'Hiver. I am here today to tell all French Jews and Jews around the world "Never Again.' We fought against the Vichy government and its bad actions".

French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday urged restart of the stalled talks between Israel and Palestine based on a two-state solution. We have known in Israel a lot of heroism, as have you here in France.

He also spoke about the murder of Sarah Halimi, a Jewish woman killed last April. "We must stand against them together; we must remain strong against them together; and we must defeat them together".

It is thought the Mr Netanyahu will be pushing to find out Mr Macron's intentions towards the Middle East process during their conversation following the ceremony.
