Nicolas Sarkozy appointed France’s ambassador to Washington, who is Jewish, as his senior diplomatic adviser. Jean-David Levitte, who reached out to Jewish groups during his term in Washington, already has joined the transition team for Sarkozy, who took office Wednesday as French president. Levitte will return to Washington in June to wrap up his ambassadorship. He presented his credentials to President Bush in December 2002.
