19 March 2013 - Syria / Election of Ghassan Hitto

Statement by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

France congratulates Mr. Ghassan Hitto on his election by the Syrian National Coalition as prime minister of the interim government. We’re convinced that this election will help unify the opposition and strengthen its cohesion under the auspices of the Coalition and its president, Mr. Moaz al-Khatib.

While the situation continues to deteriorate in Syria, resulting in more and more casualties among the population, France would like this election to enhance the Coalition’s capacity to help the Syrian people, to prepare for political change, and to work toward building a free and democratic Syria.
