Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs

Paris, November 12, 2013

I welcome the Syrian National Coalition’s decision to take part in the Geneva II conference.

It is a major step towards the possibility of a political solution.

It shows the spirit of responsibility of the moderate opposition, which yesterday formed a government representing the diversity of the Syrian people.

As the Syrian National Coalition’s members have recalled, the people are urgently demanding that international efforts enable immediate humanitarian access to civilians, particularly in the towns under siege by the regime. France fully supports this demand./.
