The Comoros – 40th anniversary of independence (July 6, 2015)

On the occasion of the national day and the 40th anniversary of the independence of the Comoros, France congratulates the Comorian authorities and people.

France and the Comoros enjoy very close and long-standing relations. Our two countries are neighbors in the Indian Ocean, where France has more than a million citizens, and are also linked together as a result of the large Comorian diaspora in France. We have formed a close partnership within the Indian Ocean Commission. It was in this context that President Hollande visited Moroni in August 2014.

France would like to continue the ongoing dialogue with the Comoros and work with it to ensure the success of COP21.
