The arrest came after a police raid in Argenteuil, in the northern outskirts of Paris. The French national's apprehension led authorities to conduct raids which they believe foiled the plot.
Cazeneuve said there were no links "at this stage" between this plot and the attacks in Paris and Brussels.

Last Friday, police raids in Brussels led to the arrest of Salah Abdelsam, the key suspect in the Paris attacks that killed 130 people last November. Since then, French police have arrested 75 people believed to be connected with terrorism, jailing 28.
Investigators are still seeking a second suspect in Tuesday's metro bombing in Brussels. The unidentified individual was seen on surveillance video inside the metro station alongside suicide bomber Khalid El-Bakraoui.
