The text, which was notably presented by France and supported by 82 other countries, strengthens the protection of journalists, including within the framework of the fight against terrorism and during demonstrations and also extends the scope of this protection to include other media professionals.

France reaffirms its commitment to promoting and protecting the freedom of expression and its corollary, the freedom of the press.
