This is an operation we want to be peaceful and under control. So far it is.
The government is totally determined that justice is done each time that a police officer is attacked.
Demonstrating with police cars and revolving blue lights… is not in conformity with the code of ethics of the police in the French Republic.
It requires the vigilance of all our compatriots.
These three women aged 39, 23 and 19 had been radicalised, were fanatics and were in all likelihood preparing an imminent, violent act.
I want the closure of the camp as quickly as possible.
France needs healing and people coming together, not divisive outbursts by those contesting in primaries.
Such a law was unlikely under the current socialist government. The government ... refuses to legislate on this because a law would be unconstitutional, ineffective and likely to create antagonism and irreparable tensions.
The fight against terrorism is the first priority for Europeans. It's imperative that police have a single interface.
The different files [on terror suspects] must be interoperable, and by that I mean interconnected. It is imperative that the police, our police on the ground, use one single interface and simultaneously examine all national and European files in order to manage the necessary security checks.
It is quite clear that with the current movement of people and the proximity to the Middle East, for our member states it is much better if we cooperate more in Europe. Many voices are critical of Europe at the moment, questioning whether it is useful. The message from here is, as far as security is concerned, a united Europe is better.
Many messages relating to the execution of terror attacks are sent using encryption; it is a central issue in the fight against terrorism. France will make proposals. I have sent a number of them to my Germany colleague.
We've seen tirades emerge immediately and personally this is both shocking and sad ... it's undignified in the current context.
Their role (reservists) will be focused on two fundamental missions: first, to check people at the borders, toll roads, and control the flow of people.

The celebrations of 14th July were prepared in close co-operation with the city of Nice, just like we do with any other city of France. But this kind of hateful attack is so new, as the suspect didn't use heavy guns or explosives, that it couldn't be prevented.
We must keep in mind as we prepare to open this festival that we are faced with a risk which has never been as high, and faced with an enemy determined to strike us at any moment. We must demonstrate extreme vigilance at all times.
The individual questioned is suspected of high-level involvement in this plan. He was part of a terrorist network that planned to strike France.
We need to strengthen controls along the EU's external borders – that means that member states need to change how their airports operate quickly to make sure that happens.
Salah Abdeslam is currently in detention along with four other individuals, and will now have to answer for his actions in a French court. This is an important blow struck against ISIL's European terrorist organisation. We will win the war against the terrorists by acting without respite or pause.

This operation will continue in coming days, calmly and methodically, providing a place for everyone as the government has committed.
By persevering and being methodical in the implementation of these measures, we will find an efficient, long term solution for the current crisis faced by the city of Calais. I say it very clearly that all these actions will be put into place until the final closure of the camp, which is my aim. I hope it happens as swiftly as possible.
We'll say this again, there's no room in France for those who call for and provoke hatred in prayer rooms or mosques and do not respect the principles of the Republic. I am thinking namely of equality, between men and women.
In view of these protests and the serious threat to public order they provoked, I asked the prefect of the Calais region – after we discussed the subject with (Calais Mayor) Natacha Bouchart – to ban all demonstrations.
There are just under 300,000 police officers in our country. We have 77,000 schools, thousands of places of worship and thousands of official buildings. We will be able to ensure security by using mobile patrols and through the measures taken by the religious institutions themselves. Everything is being done to guarantee security.
We are looking for solutions. And it is more difficult (for us), given how complicated it is … but it's our democratic duty as a republic.
On top of the 8,000 police officers at the borders, 2,800 police officers will be patrolling the site of the conference. Mobile units, riot squads and gendarmerie units will be called on at an unprecedented level.
There should be border checks at the internal borders of the EU because terrorists are crossing borders inside the EU.

Seven people have been arrested. Two people died including a woman killed by explosives. We will, in the course of the next few days within the framework of the inquiry, continue the action we are carrying out in the fight against terrorism. I will now hand over to the prosecutor.
This attack was prepared and organised by cells outside the national territory by individuals who were not known to our services.
Even if some were known to us – because there was French involvement – they were not known for their implication in terrorist activities but because they were frequenting radicalised places of worship.
The operations will continue. The response of the Republic will be implacable and total. Anyone who targets the Republic will be apprehended. The Republic will be relentless in its pursuit of the perpetrators, their accomplices and their indoctrination.
Given the current context, the control and security of the border is the only responsible reaction to this crisis. Sending out the signal that the Franco-British border would not be monitored and that crossing to the UK would be possible or easy would immediately lead to a massive and uncontrollable influx of migrants.
I will make public on 13th October new police measures for the expulsion of diffusers of hate speech, bans on leaving French territory, and bans on entering.

The Eurotunnel group also has to assume its responsibilities, of course, notably regarding the security inside its own entity. I am saying this in a spirit of responsibility, not in a spirit of controversy, because the issue is too serious not to do it this way.
The main instigator was detected after being active on social media and due to apparent links with French jihadists currently in prison. He was also known to the authorities because he hoped to go to Syria.
Determination is the key to the success we will obtain against those who organise attacks on us. As my colleague Theresa May has just said, we will win this war against terrorism, we are determined to win it.
We can't leave Greece and Italy alone with this problem. Faced with this burden the European Union needs to take charge of these hotspots in Italy and Greece as well as finance them, and we need to send our own services to help them.
Facing such a human tragedy, one's problem is a problem for the others on the condition that alongside solidarity, there is a shared responsibility.
Detailed documents that were also found established beyond doubt that the individual was planning an imminent attack, probably on one or two churches.
In the 13th district, in the vehicle and home of an individual who had been shot, police found a large collection of weapons of war, handguns, ammunition, bulletproof vests and computer and telephone hardware.
No one is ever prepared for such an event. And yet, an immediate show of solidarity could be seen, which included the entire region. The beautiful solidarity of people from the mountains and also of the state services. It's now down to the investigation to shed light on the cause of this drama.
This foodstore reopens bravely to show that life is stronger than everything.

This analysis (by French intelligence services) suggests with a very high probability that a French citizen could have directly participated in carrying out these abject acts.
France is not scared because it must not be afraid. Fear is a feeling that terrorists want to instil and if fear takes hold it will be a victory of terrorists.

We can do this by identifying a broad consensus with elected officials, associations, and Europe, around coherent and realistic measures.
Nothing can justify anti-Semitism. Nothing can justify that kind of violence. This will be fought and sanctioned.
It is unacceptable to target synagogues or shops simply because they are managed by Jews.
The combat, the battle against terrorists will take place in France, but also everywhere in Europe. Without respite or pause. We will do it by mobilising all our services.
Our goal is to use all possible legal means to identify and monitor all aspects of jihad activities.
These measures are simple. Minors who are brought to our attention by their parents will be included in the Schengen information system so that all the European countries are able to work towards preventing their departure.
We're listening to to them (the clubs) but we will stand firm because this proposal has been voted upon already and will have to be applied the same way it does to all French companies.
