Syria / UN General Assembly – Establishment of a working group on war crimes (December 21, 2016)

France welcomes the adoption by the UN General Assembly, on December 21, of a resolution aimed at establishing an international, impartial and independent mechanism to investigate the most serious crimes committed in Syria.

This mechanism is complementary to the Independent International Commission of Inquiry chaired by Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, whose work France also supports.

This is an important milestone in the fight against impunity in Syria, which is essential in order to ensure a return to lasting peace.
