I was stunned to learn of the assassination of Jovenel Moïse, President of Haiti, last night.
On France’s behalf, I extend my sincerest condolences to his family and the Haitian people.
I strongly condemn this despicable assassination. Full light must be shed on this crime, which comes amidst a very much deteriorated political and security climate. I ask all those involved in Haiti’s political life to show calm and restraint.
In these circumstances, I call on our nationals to exercise the utmost caution.
