Statement by the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry Spokesman

Paris, October 3, 2011

The Syrian opposition took a decisive step on October 2, with the announcement of its unification within the Syrian National Council.

It is through the unity of the opposition and the creation of a structure representing this opposition that the Syrian people will move forward towards the establishment of a democratic state which respects all citizens.

France calls once more on the Syrian regime, which is endeavouring to split the communities and its continuing its brutal repression to respect the political views expressed by the Syrian people, who are calling for reforms and democracy./.
