Zimbabwe - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (15.11.17)

Q - What is your response to the army takeover in Zimbabwe?

A - France, along with its partners, and particularly its European partners, is closely following events in Zimbabwe.

We reiterate our commitment to constitutional order and respect for the legitimate aspirations of the Zimbabwean people. We encourage all parties to seek a solution within this framework, without resorting to violence.

Early this morning, our embassy sent security advisories to our compatriots living and traveling in Zimbabwe. As a precautionary measure, the French school is closed today.
