French envoy at JPost conference: Terrorism is terrorism, whether it targets France or Israel

French Ambassador to Israel Patrick Maisonnave addressed the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday, saying that "terrorism is terrorism" whether it targets France or Israel.

He thanked Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for their support for the French people in the aftermath of last week’s attacks in Paris that killed 129 people.

"The priority is to arrest the culprits and those who helped or inspired them and to prevent similar attacks in the future," he said. "I’m grateful to the United States, to the State of Israel and to others which will enhance their cooperation with us," he said.
