Ministerial meeting on Syria
(Paris, 19 April 2012)

Statement by Mr Alain Juppé, Ministre d’Etat, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs
Paris, 18 April 2012

The obstacles that Damascus is placing in the way of the deployment of the UN observer mission and the Syrian regime’s continuation of the crackdown in violation of its commitments, calls for a strong response on the part of the international community.

That’s why I’ve invited several of my counterparts from the Group of Friends of Syria to come to Paris to review the situation and to convey a message of firmness to Damascus as well as a message of support to Mr. Kofi Annan.

Having reached an agreement yesterday here in Paris on how to enforce the sanctions, tomorrow we will demonstrate our determination not to allow a process that is critical to the Syrian people to be derailed.
