France firmly condemns today’s bombing in Tal Afar which killed many people and injured dozens of others, as well as the one yesterday near Mosul.

France extends her condolences to the victims’ families and close friends and reaffirms to the Iraqi authorities and people her wholehearted solidarity in the face of these acts of terrorism.

As Prime Minister François Fillon reiterated on his recent visit to Iraq, we remain determined to support Iraq in the full recovery of her sovereignty, consolidation of the State’s authority and her efforts to bring about national reconciliation./.
