Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (16.04.18)

Q - Emmanuel Macron said yesterday during his interview that the Small Group formed by France on Syria would meet next week. When and where will that meeting take place? What’s been going on with that group since the UN General Assembly last September?

A - France speaks to everyone.

It engages in dialogue with all countries that have influence in Syria on the priorities that could form a common basis for resolving the crisis: the fight against terrorism, the rejection of the use of chemical weapons, humanitarian aid and the search for a political solution.

The meeting of the Small Group announced by the President is part of these efforts.

We are working on holding it as soon as possible, perhaps this week.
