The striker, who is currently on a season-long loan deal from Queens Park Rangers, has scored five goals in five games for the Magpies.
Remy netted twice on Saturday as Newcastle earned a 2-1 win at Cardiff City in the Premier League.
"He's scored important goals - twice again (on Saturday) - and he helped us to win the game, so of course he deserves to be in the France squad," fellow Frenchman Cabaye told nufcTV. "For me, it's fantastic because I love to play forward and with him. It's so easy because he's quick."
France welcome Australia to the Parc des Princes for an international friendly on Friday.
