France deplores the death sentences handed down in Iran against Elham Chubdar and Zahra Sedighi-Hamedani.
France reaffirms its unwavering opposition to the death penalty everywhere and in all circumstances. We remain resolutely committed to the universal abolition of this unjust, inhuman, ineffective punishment. We call on all nations that still apply the death penalty to place it under a moratorium ahead of its ultimate abolition.
France also reiterates its firm commitment to the universal decriminalization of homosexuality and to defending the rights of LGBT+ people.
