The Foreign Ministry said today that an advocate of Franco-Israeli rapprochement has retracted a statement he made in Paris last week that the French Government might soon change its policy toward Israel. The statement was attributed to Salomon Friederich, head of the League for Israel-French Friendship, a group sponsored by the Herut Party here. A spokesman said the Foreign Ministry learned of the retraction through inquiries made of Mr. Friederich by the Israel Embassy in Paris.
