French Ambassador: Israel Can Rely on Hollande


France’s ambassador to Israel, Christophe Bigot, said on Thursday that Israel can rely on France’s new president, Francois Hollande, on the issue of Iran, just as it relied on former president Sarkozy.

Army Radio reported that Bigot made the comments during an event marking Bastille Day, adding, “We will expand the sanctions against Iran as long as it does not stop its uranium enrichment program. The security of Israel is at stake, as is the security of the world.”
