Bibi says relations with Arab world at all time high

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israeli-Arab relations are at their best ever, according to the AP. Netanyahu said that even though a deal with the Palestinian side isn’t close it hasn’t affected relations with Arabs even if their extent remains out of the public eye.

Other international stories worth noting in brief this morning:

  • The United States wants the UN Security Council to impose sanctions on North Korea’s most lucrative exports and set an oil embargo, according to Reuters. A draft resolution is ready and the US may push it as early as Monday. The resolution aims to block oil imports and ban exports of textiles and labourers.
  • A draft bill presented at a French cabinet meeting Wednesday proposes to end exploration concessions and halt all oil and gas production by 2040, Bloomberg reports. If passed the law would allow the government to halt 40 exploration requests that have already been made as well as limiting extensions on production licenses.
