Burkina Faso - Statement by Laurent Fabius [fr]
Statement by M. Laurent Fabius - Paris, 3 November 2014
France continues to follow the situation in Burkina Faso very closely and salutes the courage of the Burkinabe people as they mobilize their efforts on behalf of democracy. It welcomes the efforts of the joint mission conducted by ECOWAS, the African Union and the United Nations.
France urges all the actors to continue their consultations with a view to the swift implementation of a solution that is in compliance with Burkina Faso’s constitutional framework. To that end, a civilian interim head of state must be appointed very quickly to lead the country toward new elections.
