                  "President Macron has announced his visit to Israel next spring. I would also like to visit next year," said French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe during a speech at Paris's Buffault Synagogue where he extended his best wishes to the Jewish community on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

                  In his address, he paid tribute to France's "closest partner," Israel, with which he looked forward to developing bilateral ties. ‘’We hold onto this relationship, and we want to deepen it in all ways, economically and culturally," said Philippe.

                  He also saluted the 150,000 French citizens living in Israel, describing them as France's best ambassadors of the nation's language and culture.

                  He highlighted next year's France-Israel Season, a six-month event which will run simultaneously in both countries, as an example of their close cooperation.
