French gov't anger at increasing number of Jews in Jerusalem

The spokesman of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bernard Valero, expressed the deep concern of his country in view of the expansion of the Jewish presence in Jerusalem.

The French politician was angered by Israel Defence Minister Ehud Barak's statement on French TV that it is not possible to stop building in Jewish settlements (the French call them "colonies").

Mr. Valero said that his country's position remains unchanged. Jewish presence in East Jerusalem and the "West Bank" is illegal.
