Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development

Paris, December 3, 2015

I welcome the vote by the British House of Commons authorizing an intensification of the United Kingdom’s military efforts in the fight against Daesh [so-called ISIL] by extending them to Syria. Initial operations took place in the night.

Through this vote and these actions, the UK is signalling its determination to combat Daesh. A fortnight after the 13 November attacks, this is a concrete demonstration of solidarity with our country./.
