Statement by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs Spokesman

Paris, November 17, 2011

France has, right from the outset, fully supported the Arab League’s efforts to put an end to the crackdown in Syria.

She welcomed, through the Ministre d’Etat, the strong decisions taken in Cairo on 12 November by the Arab League after it emerged that the Syrian regime was not honouring the commitments that it had made.

France commends the mobilization and the spirit of responsibility demonstrated by the Arab League, which has just held another meeting in Rabat.

We support its action and we unreservedly support the decisions that have been taken.

The Syrian regime must respond to the demands expressed by the Arab League and the international community./.
