Orange telecom CEO meets with Netanyahu following boycott controversy

(JNS.org) Stephane Richard, CEO of the French telecommunications giant Orange, visited Israel in an effort to repair ties following his recent controversial remarks in Cairo that suggested he would support a boycott of Israel. Orange has a 10-year licensing agreement on cell phone service with Israel’s Partner Communications. Meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday, June 12, Richard said he wished “to make totally clear that Orange as a company has never supported and will never support any kind of boycott against Israel.” “Israel is a fantastic place to be in the digital industry and of course our will is to strengthen and to keep on investing here,” he said.
