Comoros – Summoning of the ambassador (Paris, 26 March 2018)

On March 26, Mohamed Soulaimana, ambassador of the Comoros to France, was summoned to the office of the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs. He was reminded of our serious concern regarding the consequences for Mayotte of measures announced last week by the Comorian authorities.

We strongly reiterate our demand for the immediate lifting of these measures which prevent the return of Comorian nationals who entered Mayotte illegally.

In addition to the measures we are asking the Comorian authorities to take immediately, we are determined to move forward with regional cooperation in accordance with the guidelines set at the last interministerial committee for international cooperation and development, in the mutual interest of France and the Comoros.
