United States - Qatar - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (12.07.17)


Q - What’s your reaction to the counterterrorism agreement signed yesterday by the U.S. and Qatar?

A - France’s priority is the fight against terrorism.

With that aim in mind, Jean-Yves Le Drian will remind his interlocutors during his visit to the Gulf on July 14 to 16 of our attachment to the unity of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, which is vital to safeguarding the region’s stability and providing a collective response to the challenges posed by terrorism.

In this situation, all measures that help strengthen the tools to combat terrorism and UN-recognized terrorist groups, particularly in the area of financing, are positive.
