France calls on Middle Eastern countries to stop boycotting French products


PARIS (Reuters) – France on Sunday urged Middle Eastern countries to prevent retail companies from boycotting French products.

The Foreign Office said in a statement that in recent days there had been calls to boycott French products, including food, in several Middle Eastern countries as well as calls for protests against France to the publication of satirical caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

“These boycott calls are unfounded and should cease immediately, along with all attacks against our country, which are being pushed by a radical minority,” the statement said.
