Comoros – Meeting between Jean-Yves Le Drian and his counterpart (April 19)


Jean-Yves Le Drian received his Comorian counterpart, Mohamed El-Amine Souef, Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Francophonie, in charge of Comorians abroad, today. This meeting provided an opportunity to continue the discussions initiated during Minister of State Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne’s visit to Moroni last week.

Through this series of high-level meetings, France expects to elicit clear answers to the immediate concerns linked to the recent decisions by the Union of the Comoros with respect to its nationals in an irregular situation in Mayotte, to work together to improve control over the movement of persons and to lay the groundwork for renewed cooperation in the interests of both of our countries.
