Paris - The French Foreign Ministry has just informed the parties and NGO's that have addressed this issue

From the official statement: "France will not participate at Durban IV on the 20 September due to the antisemitic elements attached to the entire Durban process since 2001. France will thus join the great Western democracies: USA,  UK,  Germany,  Canada,  Australia...."
