Turkey / Terrorist fighters - Q&A - From the press briefing (9 December 2019)


Q : Following Turkey’s statement on the expulsion of 11 French members of the Islamic State group, what are the next steps for this group of individuals? How many men, women, and children are there? What information has the Turkish government conveyed on their cases, and how? How many French Daesh members has Turkey expelled this year?

R : As you know, it is not customary for us to comment on possible returns from Turkey.

These repatriations are coordinated by Turkey and France under the Cazeneuve Protocol.

With regard to the implementation of that mechanism, we therefore refer you to the Ministry of the Interior.
