French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot denied refuted a suggestion that France has become on of Israel's largest critics in recent years, instead saying that Paris is one of Israel's best friends. "Look at what we are doing on Iran," he offered in an interview with Army Radio Monday morning, adding that Paris and other European countries were expected to pass strong sanctions on Iran later in the day.

France, he said, does disagree with Israel on issues of the peace process, saying he believes "Israelis and Palestinians should be more ambitious."

The lack of progress in the peace process, he said, is frustrating.
