19 October, 14:08

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, OCTOBER 19 - The Israeli foreign ministry has summoned France's ambassador to Israel, Patrick Maisonnave, in what was described as a harsh debate following a French proposal calling for international observers to be stationed at Temple Mount in Jerusalem, according to the ministry's spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

    During the talks, Israel stressed it is against the French proposal - as already stated by Premier Benyamin Netanyahu.

    Nahshon explained, illustrating what was said to Maissonave, that Israel opposes any move that is uncoordinated and suggested without its participation on issues concerning its vital interests. The French ambassador, according to Mahshon, objected that his country is going through ideas over what he defined as a constantly stalling peace process. (ANSAmed)
