French President Jacques Chirac brought up the fate of 13 Iranian Jews arrested earlier this year on charges of spying for Israel when he met Wednesday with his Iranian counterpart. French officials later said Mohammad Khatami had told them that some earlier statements emanating from Tehran about the 13 had been made by hard-liners who are not fully aware of the case. French Jews protested during Khatami’s visit to Paris, denouncing Tehran’s imprisonment of the 13.
