France condemns the murder of Cameroon journalist Martinez Zogo in the strongest possible terms. Those who committed this act must be identified and be held accountable, and Cameroon’s authorities have pledged to do so.
France reaffirms its commitment to the freedom of speech and freedom of the press throughout the world. Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna paid tribute to all the journalists who have given their lives for their commitment to the truth during her new year’s wishes to the Diplomatic Press Association on January 24.
We will continue to support those who work to spread free, reliable, quality information, wherever they may be found.
