Paris, October 10, 2014

I would like to extend my wholehearted congratulations to the young Pakistani girl, Malala, and to the Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi, who have just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

I pay tribute to their courage and their fight for children’s rights and for the right to education.

The commitment of Malala and of Kailash Satyarthi is also shared by France which, on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, remains more committed than ever to this fight./.
