United Nations - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (12.09.17)


Q - Does France plan on attending the September 18th meeting in New York called by Donald Trump to pressure the UN to reform itself? And will it sign the political declaration planned for that meeting?

A - We will be interested to hear the American president’s proposals on UN reform at this open meeting.

The major global challenges the international community is facing together with respect to peace and security, sustainable development, and human rights, require all of us to mobilize to strengthen the multilateral system and the effectiveness of the UN.

In this regard, we fully support the efforts of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and will continue to work to that end with our principal partners in New York.
