Bolivia

Will France recognize Jeanine Añez as interim president of Bolivia, following the resignation of Evo Morales?

France is paying close attention to the situation in Bolivia. President Evo Morales announced his resignation.

France takes note of this decision and the announcements that were made regarding the organization of the transition. It calls on all parties to exercise restraint. It hopes new elections can be held as swiftly as possible.

An atmosphere of calm is essential in order to make constructive progress toward a peaceful resolution of this crisis within a democratic framework.
