French ambassador: Iran sanctions could lead to regime change

French ambassador to Israel Jean-Michel Casa does not rule out the possibility that tougher sanctions on Iran will lead to a regime change in the Islamic republic. "If Iranian products come under tougher international sanctions, the Iranian public will begin to question whether the nuclear program is unnecessary, and maybe the regime will begin to conduct itself in a more logical manner," Casa told Army Radio. The French envoy also expressed hope that Syria-Israel negotiations would at the beginning of next year lead to a visit of Syrian President Bashar Assad to the Knesset, or to a visit of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert or President Shimon Peres to Damascus.
