Press conference given by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (excerpts)
Tokyo, October 5, 2014


Q. – What’s your position on the demonstrations under way in Hong Kong?

THE MINISTER – France is paying close attention to what’s happening, because, as I was telling you, we’re China’s friends. Our stance is still in line with what China has recognized, i.e. a country with two systems. We genuinely want peaceful ways and means to be found to ease these tensions./.
