France opposed to boycott of Israel

In an exclusive interview to Ynet on Friday morning, Chief Executive and Chairman of Orange, Stephane Richard, rejected recent accusations of anti-Semitism and support of the world-wide Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel saying, “We love Israel. This has absolutely nothing to do with the kind of political debate in which I don’t want to be.”

Richard’s comments to Ynet come just two days after saying in Egypt that he intended to withdraw Orange from its collaboration with Israel’s Partner Communications, a popular cell-phone service provider in Israel. The collaboration has allowed Partner to use the Orange name since 1998. Partner provides service to Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
