The Group does not engage in any kind of political debate under any circumstance. The Orange Group has no operational presence in Israel. It has a brand licence agreement with the operator Partner Communications. The Orange Group is not a shareholder of Partner and has no influence on the strategy or operational development of this company. This agreement, which was signed prior to the acquisition of Orange by France Telecom in 2000, is the only long-term brand licence agreement within the Orange Group.
