French President Francois Hollande presented World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder with the Legion of Honor on Wednesday, AFP reported.

"Since 2007, you have been the president of the World Jewish Congress, which brings together representatives of Jewish communities from 100 countries, you criss-cross the world and you carry a message of tolerance and peace," Hollande said in Paris as he presented Lauder with France's highest honor.

The French president praised Lauder for guiding the Jewish community ""in a world where threats are accumulating and where hatreds thought to have disappeared are reappearing," according to AFP.
