Press Statement – France


The delegate of France would like to make clear that during the hostage crisis it also offered to deploy the entire French army across the border of Turkey, if necessary to protect their borders after the rescue of the hostages. The delegation of Turkey has deliberately blocked an action that could have saved the lives of the Spanish ambassador and consular staff and the lives of two journalists over nearly baseless fears of ISIS; especially as coalition airstrikes in Kobane have been keeping the pressure off the Turkish border in the area. If ISIS is a rabid dog, Turkey has a duty to help put that dog down, not cower in fear behind a door that may not even hold the dog out long.
