Syria - Death of Mr Mounir Darwish (13 January 2018)


We were sad to learn of the death, at the age of 80, of Mr Mounir Darwish, a Syrian opposition figure, on 13 January in a Damascus hospital, after he was hit by a vehicle. We extend our condolences to his family.

We call for full light to be shed on the circumstances of this tragedy.

France pays tribute to the memory of the Syrian writer and opposition member, who worked tirelessly for a practical solution to the Syria crisis as founder member of the “Cairo Group”, one of the Syrian opposition’s platforms.
