United States

U.S. President Donald Trump has fired his national security adviser John Bolton. Can you comment on his departure? In your opinion, how might this decision impact the situation concerning efforts to resolve the crisis in Ukraine? And with respect to other international issues?

We do not have to comment on appointments within the U.S. administration.

Israel – Palestinian Territories

What is France's response to the comments made by Benjamin Netanyahu who announced plans "to apply Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley and the northern Dead Sea?"

France calls on the parties to refrain from any measure likely to undermine the two-state solution, the only way to satisfy the legitimate aspirations of the Israelis and the Palestinians. It reaffirms its attachment to the objective of a Palestinian state living in peace and security alongside the State of Israel, within internationally recognized borders and with Jerusalem as the capital of both states.
