Chemical attacks in Syria go against international norms

Syria - Remarks to the press by François Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations - 7 April 2017

Three quick messages before attending this important session of the Security Council.

Number one: The chemical attacks in Syria go against every international norm, every piece of international law.

Number two: in the context that we all know, the U.S. strikes are a legitimate response to these attacks and an important signal for the future.

And number three: we hope the recent developments can be a game changer and help boost the political negotiations in Syria. This is the key, and this is our priority.
