Iran - Syria - Israel - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (23.01.19)


Q : Do you support the Israeli airstrikes on Iranian targets in Syria in response to a surface-to-surface missile fired by the Iranians?

A : France has repeatedly expressed its concern over Iran’s destabilizing activities in Syria. The missile fired at Israel on January 20 is the latest illustration of that.

That action confirms yet again the need for Iran to abide by UN Security Council resolutions and the urgent need to resume the political process in Syria. It underscores the need for negotiations on limiting Iran’s ballistic and regional activities.
