United States – Homophobia – Reminder of the statement issued by Jean-Marc Ayrault (June 12) [fr]

Excerpts from the daily press briefing by Romain Nadal, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international Development spokesman (Paris, June 13th, 2016)

I was extremely shocked to learn of the shooting rampage that took place on Saturday night in Orlando, which exacted a terrible toll.

My thoughts go first of all to the victims’ families, to whom I extend my condolences, as well as to the many wounded, whom I wish a speedy recovery.

I express my wholehearted solidarity with the American people and their authorities in this dreadful ordeal. In the face of such an event, France stands alongside the United States.
