Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson
(Paris, July 13, 2005)
Following is the statement I made yesterday:
"France condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack in Netanya. It presents its condolences to the victims' families and friends, and offers its sympathy to the Israeli authorities.
France calls on the Palestinian Authority to do everything possible to stop such criminal acts, which no cause can justify. This is a matter of its obligations under the roadmap and international legality.
France calls on the parties to show restraint and to respect the truce. It recalls that only the opening of a political perspective, through the implementation of the road map, will end the cycle of violence."
