21 November 2012 - Israël-Gaza - Official statements

Statement by Mr. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs

I utterly condemn the attack that has just taken place in Tel Aviv, targeting civilians just at a time when everything must be done to achieve a ceasefire.

Establishing a lasting ceasefire is a matter of urgency.

I will discuss this matter once again today with my Israeli, Egyptian and American counterparts.

Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

France is deeply concerned by the continued violence in Gaza and in Israel, whose civilian populations are the primary victims.

While the safety of journalists was endangered by last night’s explosions in Gaza, France reaffirms its attachment to the freedom of the press and the protection of journalists.

As the minister of foreign affairs has just stated, establishing a lasting ceasefire is a matter of utmost urgency.
