Syria – Iraq – Daesh – United Nations – Adoption by the Security Council of Resolution 2249 – Statement by Laurent Fabius (November 20, 2015)


In his speech before the Congress of the French Parliament gathered at Versailles, President Hollande expressed the wish that a resolution marking the international community’s determination to combat terrorism would be swiftly adopted.

I welcome the unanimous adoption by the Security Council of the resolution proposed by France. A week after the heinous attacks in Paris, this resolution calls for intensified efforts to combat Daesh and the groups affiliated with Al Qaeda.

All states must now make a solid commitment to this fight, whether in terms of military action, the search for political solutions or efforts to combat the financing of terrorism.
