Syria (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - May 9, 2012)



Q : What’s your reaction to the attack on observers in Syria?

A : We strongly condemn the attack against the convoy led by General Robert Mood, head of the observer mission in Syria.

The security and the integrity of the mission must be scrupulously respected, as stipulated by UN Security Council resolutions 2042 and 2043. The Syrian authorities’ primary responsibility is to guarantee this security while ensuring the mission’s full freedom of movement.

We hold the Damascus regime responsible for the safety of the observers.
