Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (20.10.17)


Q - How would you assess the prospects for new peace talks in Geneva?

A - France’s position is constant: The only way to resolve the crisis in Syria, combat terrorism over the long term, allow refugees to return and restore peace is through a negotiated political solution.

These new talks must allow us to make progress toward achieving these goals.

We therefore fully support the mediation efforts led by Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General Staffan de Mistura.
