Turkey - Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (14 June 2017)


Q - Several NGOs are reporting problems with Turkey when it comes to having access to populations in Syria, and especially in Raqqa. Has Paris raised this issue with Ankara?

A - The protection of civilians in Syria is a priority for France. We constantly demand safe, full, and unfettered humanitarian access to meet the needs of local populations.

We have raised this question in our ongoing dialogue with the Turkish authorities on all issues related to the liberation of Raqqa, a strategic priority.
