Laurent Fabius quotes
The priority is to fight the radical Islamic State movement, Daesh, and then to organise a political transition. Obviously, President Assad, who is responsible for most of the Syrian tragedy, cannot be part of its future.
If temperatures continue to rise, we won't be dealing with hundreds of thousands of people but hundreds of millions of people. I believe, and the approach of everyone here was that we have to mobilise to achieve a significant result in Paris in December.
With regard to all those people who are politically chased out of their country and whose countries are at war, we have to be able to welcome them. It's called the plea for asylum and every country has to respond to that. Hungary is part of Europe, which has values, and we do not respect those values by putting up fences.
I take a very dim view, a very dim view. Hungary is part of Europe. Europe has values and these values are not respected by putting up wire fences.
Germany is behaving very courageously, France is by its side, but the whole of Europe must assume their responsibilities.
If there is an agreement, there will be a lifting of sanctions, but if the agreement is not implemented, there has to be what we call a snapback mechanism, which automatically will bring back the sanctions.
As much as we understand the need for phone taps with regard to terrorists, that has nothing to do with the tapping of leaders who are allies and friends. I've asked the ambassador to give us some rapid answers.
The priority must be cyber security and cyber defence. Preserving freedom of course, but cyber security and cyber defence are the options we're mainly pursuing.
It's a positive step, but at the same time there are still questions and details that need to be resolved.
This happened at the same time as a peace agreement for Mali is presented. This terrorist and cowardly act is very hard to accept.
We've told the Russians clearly that any attack by separatists in the direction of Mariupol will drastically alter things, including sanctions. I told Mr. Lavrov clearly if this happened then at a European level sanctions would be raised again.
We ask for the reinforcement of the OSCE special monitoring mission. We ask all sides involved to completely cooperate with the OSCE to allow this organisation to fulfil its mandate, especially with regard to the surveillance and verification of the withdrawal of heavy weapons.
But the fact that a certain number of dispositions should have a practical effect and be legally binding is obvious so let's not confuse things, which is perhaps what Mr Kerry has done.
Jurists will discuss the legal nature of an accord on whether it should be termed as a treaty or an international agreement.
This is not a political discussion. This is a real accord with facts.
We support you in your fight against terrorism, against Boko Haram, which is a necessary fight, not only for your country, but for the whole region.
The goal is simple. It's to reverse the trend. To do that we'll need treatment centres, training, check ups and financing control. That's the top priority.
ISIL is neither a state, nor representative of Islam, it is a menacing, extremist movement. All those here consider it necessary to push it back and make it disappear.
All of us want to achieve, as quickly as possible, a lasting negotiated ceasefire, which meets Israel's security needs and the needs of the Palestinians, in terms of economic and social development, and access to the Gaza territory.
These figures are not reasonable.
We have to work to reinforce their security, because their security is our security. It's so close to us, with these terrorist groups. They're in one country, but they can easily cross borders and end u pin Europe.
It was out of the question for France to act alone. We regret that, because we believe it would have changed many things, in many respects.
There are French, Belgians, Italians, a whole range of Europeans including French citizens who have left to fight Jihad in Syria, as they say.
How should Europe and France behave towards Ukraine now? Accompany the transition to democracy and hope it will be peaceful and that the integrity of the unity of Ukraine will be respected.
From the perspective of the European elections we have chosen to travel together to underline the significance of the European Union to our co-citizens and the ambitions we have for its future.
The difficult thing is that with some of these militias which we call the former Seleka, I was told many of them have taken off their uniforms and are now dressed as civilians so we need to ask for the weapons but it is difficult to recognise these individuals.
It's a crime against people who were assassinated in cold blood, in odious conditions, but it's also a crime against the freedom to inform and be informed.
We had already been alerted in June and we reacted strongly but obviously we need to go further. This kind of practice between partners, that violates privacy is totally unacceptable. We must ensure quickly that these practices are no longer repeated.
This report, as the U.N. General Secretary Ban Ki -moon said, is a very accusatory report. If we look at the amount of sarin which was used, the targets and the equipment that was needed, then we have no doubt that the Syrian regime was behind these attacks.
What is important now is that this agreement is put in place rapidly to eliminate once forever the chemical threat that the Syrian regime puts on its own population and its neighbours.
The draft framework agreed in Geneva is represents important progress. Of course it doesn't resolve everything and there are a number of details to go through.
In some circumstances it can be bypassed, but international law is defined by the UN.
From the moment the facts are proven in an incontestable way, there will be a response.
We're currently re-examining our relations with Egypt and then, depending on the situation, we'll see what needs to be decided.
There are laws to be respected but their act does not require major punishment.
It is an attack that targets not only France but all the countries that fight against terrorism. I'm going to travel immediately to Libya. This attack aimed to kill. France will never give in.
The agreement reached overnight is hard but there couldn't be any other solution. That's what (French Finance Minister) Pierre Moscovici has called the 'casino economy'. The Cypriot system was totally unviable.
It is a priority for the country's future. And the European Union will focus some of its efforts towards training for the Malian army.
It is possible but it remains the responsiblilty of the other countries involved whether they decide not only to provide logistical support, but also to provide combat troops. But we cannot force them to do it.
We are very worried because the situation is escalating and the tension is increasing. We, the French, as a force of peace, want to help bring about a de-escalation.
Our idea is to focus on the humanitarian aspect – to draw attention to these absolutely key questions – because we are talking about men and women's lives; to reinforce the resources needed because all that obviously costs money which can be a lot for the countries concerned, to raise public awareness and to try to make progress on these issues.
This plane was unarmed and was on a routine flight when it was shot down, according to those who know, without any prior warning. So it is indeed unacceptable, and the NATO council will address this question from tomorrow.
No! It's WILL he do better.
Europe's biggest business district is in need of a strong legal mind. And Mister Sarkozy is a second year law student.
But who will look after the children?
I am a candidate because there are situations, inequalities, injustices that I do not accept.
If I am chosen as the socialist's candidate and elected as president, I will apply the socialist project.
