The World Jewish Congress on Wednesday called on the French president to support an initiative to put Hezbollah on the European Union's list of terrorist organizations following evidence provided by Bulgaria of their involvement in the Burgas bus bombing.
France's President François Hollande told World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder in response that France would study the evidence assembled by the Bulgarian investigators before making any decision regarding the labeling of the Lebanese organization.
The French president also told Lauder that Iran was not the problem of Israel but of the whole world.
