Communiqué from Foreign and European Affairs Minister Bernard Kouchner

November 30, 2007

We are delighted to have this long-awaited proof [that the hostages are alive] which provides some relief to the families concerned. We shall be studying it carefully.

Our thoughts go out at this time to the hostages and their relatives.

It is necessary today more than ever to intensify the efforts to find a humanitarian solution that will lead to the release of all the hostages.

The French authorities remain fully mobilized to this end, in close liaison with the Colombian authorities.
