Qatar - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (13.06.17)


Q - Do you think the economic measures imposed on Qatar by its neighbors should be eased?

A - France has close ties with all the Arab Gulf states. It is convinced that they must work together to find a solution to the current crisis.

France is counting on each of its partners in the region to effectively combat terrorism. We therefore value the agreement among Arab Gulf states to do so.

We support Kuwait’s efforts to establish the conditions for easing tensions and call on all the parties to make the necessary gestures to that end. We hope that no measures will be taken that harm populations.
