French ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot said during a ceremony in Jerusalem on Tuesday that his country would not stand idly by in the face of Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"We must act resolutely towards the Iranian regime which seeks not only to have a nuclear weapon, but also denies the very existence of the right for Israel to exist," he said. "In front of these words and actions, France will not be a passive witness.”

Bigot, who was a guest speaker at the event honoring a Holocaust survivor, also touched on the issue of anti-Semitism in France saying it was still a potentially potent force that cannot be taken lightly.

"To play down these acts, or worse, to be indifferent to them, is an indignity because nothing, not even a word, is trivial," he said. "We have to repeat, again and again, that anti-Semitism is not an opinion, but an abjection."
