Oren wrote on Twitter:

Oren, a member of the Kulanu party, Israel’s former ambassador to the US and current deputy minister for diplomacy in the Prime Minister’s Office, made his comment days after the French government directed businesses to adhere to last year’s non-binding resolution from the European Union recommending that its member states use labels distinguishing between Israeli products from within and beyond the 1967 lines.

In response to Oren, French Ambassador to Israel Helene Le Gal wrote on Twitter:

The Israeli Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying it “condemns” France’s decision.
