Syria - Reminder of the spokesperson’s statement (31 december, 2016)


The unanimous adoption of Resolution 2336 shows how important implementing a ceasefire in Syria is to the international community. France has long been calling for one.

Now it wants the ceasefire to be fully observed, in order to save civilian lives and ensure full access to humanitarian assistance.

It is also urgent that political negotiations resume under the United Nations, based on the Geneva Communiqué and relevant Security Council resolutions.

France will play a full part.
