Paris, February 22, 2011

To ensure our compatriots’ safety in the context of the violence in Libya over the past few days, the government has decided to repatriate those whose presence there is not essential today.

Three air force planes are leaving Paris for Tripoli.

I have instructed our embassy in Libya to inform all our compatriots present in the area and help them get to the airport./.
