Iraq – Attacks – Statement by Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (May 11, 2016)


I utterly condemn the appalling attacks that plunged Baghdad into mourning yesterday.

I extend my heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and my deepest sympathy to the Iraqi people in the face - once again - of Daesh’s barbarity.

France will continue to resolutely combat this terrorist group, alongside the Iraqi authorities and its partners in the international coalition.
