Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (05.07.17)


Q - In a communiqué published this morning, the Elysée spoke once again of a humanitarian red line. Can you explain how it is that this red line hasn’t already been crossed in Syria, and what the consequences will be if it is?

A - I suggest you direct your question to the Elysée.

For France, the unhindered, secure delivery of humanitarian aid to all needy populations throughout Syria is a priority. In discussions with our partners and in UN bodies, including the Security Council, France is working tirelessly to achieve this objective.

Humanitarian access is a subject that the minister raises with each of his interlocutors concerned by the Syrian crisis.
