Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in France on Wednesday to try to seek backing from President Nicolas Sarkozy for his hawkish line on Iran.

Making his first visit to Europe since taking office in April, Netanyahu flew into Paris from Rome and was set to hold one-on-one talks with Sarkozy, before giving an evening speech to members of the French Jewish community.

The talks with the French leader were set to focus on the question of Iran, with Netanyahu expected to press UN Security Council member France to back harder sanctions over Tehran's nuclear drive.
