Vigilance recommendations issued by the United States – Statement by the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry Spokesman

Paris, October 3, 2010

We have noted the vigilance recommendations issued by the United States for American nationals travelling in Europe, which are in line with the general recommendations we ourselves are addressing to the French population.

We have a regular dialogue and exchange of intelligence with our main partners regarding the fight against terrorism. The indications provided by the US authorities, particularly regarding the terrorist threat in Europe, are, of course analysed, cross-referenced and, where appropriate, included in our national assessment of the threat, which is always based on a whole set of elements.

Since the terrorist threat remains high in France, the alert level remains unchanged at level red./.
