Côte d’Ivoire – Security situation (16 May 2017)


Like ECOWAS and the African Union, France expresses its concern at the security situation in Côte d’Ivoire and at the use of violence by a part of the army to support its claims.

France calls for dialogue and national solidarity in order to find a lasting and peaceful solution to this issue within the framework of a security sector reform.

France calls for a non-violent debate that will ensure the security of the population and respect the rule of law.

The economic and social progress made by the country over the last few years must be sustained.
