Syria – Elections (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - April 28, 2014)

Q : The Syrian president is standing in the presidential elections. Your response?

A : As Laurent Fabius said, this candidacy, like this election, would be a tragic absurdity and parody. No legitimacy could come out of this phantom election in a devastated country.

Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the death of 150,000 people. Only a political solution and the establishment of a transitional government with full executive powers, in accordance with the Geneva statement of June 30, 2012, will make it possible to resolve the crisis.
