Official foreign policy statements

Official foreign policy statements and texts are posted daily on the News page. Most are translated by the press departments of our embassies in London, Bonn, Madrid and Mexico.

While the aim is to provide you with the latest bulletins of texts and statements, you can click on the relevant dates to see the previous thirty.

To access earlier French foreign policy statements (since 1966) or search for specific topics, click on database of French foreign policy statements.

NB : despite every effort to prevent alteration of these documents, accidental modifications cannot be totally avoided.
