13 June 2013 - Lebanon / Syrian bombing

Statement by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

France strongly condemns the bombing that targeted the Lebanese town of Aarsal yesterday, which constitutes a violation of Lebanon’s integrity and sovereignty. Any act of provocation or threat to civil peace in Lebanon, regardless of the perpetrator, is unacceptable.

France expresses its solidarity with Lebanon. It would like to reaffirm its full support for Lebanon’s institutions and their guarantor, President Suleiman. We reaffirm our support for the policy of disassociation and the commitments undertaken in the Baabda Declaration, on President Suleiman’s initiative.

We also commend the role of the Lebanese armed forces, who are courageously continuing their mission on the ground in order maintain and restore calm.
